What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Delivering one cracked egg
Laetitia Pople Dié swaansage toor met jou
Christy Lemire Trippy twisted fantasy
Pete Hammond There is nothing about Black Swan that's remotely predictable and anything less than thrilling to watch.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan is a full-bore melodrama, told with passionate intensity, gloriously and darkly absurd.
Jason Anderson Though Darren Aronofsky’s latest certainly has its moments of freaky grace, Black Swan is a frustratingly inelegant creature on the whole.
Peter Travers Just as he did with the fight game in The Wrestler, Aronofsky treats ballet as one of the bleeding arts. And so does his breathtaking star, Natalie Portman, who delivers an all-stops-out performance that will soon be the stuff of legend. Portman's portrait of an artist under siege is unmissable and unforgettable. So is the movie. You won't know what hit you.
C. Fuchs Black Swan isn't an easy sit, but it's one of the best offerings of 2010.
Tomatometer Bracingly intense, passionate, and wildly melodramatic, Black Swan glides on Darren Aronofsky's bold direction -- and a bravura performance from Natalie Portman.
