"Black Swan"

The Sundance Channel has teamed up with Barron's Educational Series to bring the popular film compendium "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die" to the small screen in a new weekly series. Every Sunday, Sundance Channel will air a classic Hollywood, independent or foreign film featured in the latest edition of the book.

This Sunday kicks off with Darren Aronofsky's brilliant psychological doppelganger thriller "Black Swan," starring Natalie Portman in the role that won her an Oscar in 2011. Jonathan Demme's "Philadelphia," starring Tom Hanks (who won the Best Actor Oscar) and Denzel Washington, screens on August 4, with Neill Blomkamp's "District 9" screening on August 11, in time for the theatrical release of Blomkamp's follow-up "Elysium."

The series will unspool for at least the next couple of years. You can check out the full schedule here.

    Why do I suspect that 998 of them will have been made after STAR WARS?
