Reel Movie Reviews: Black Swan

by at . Comments

Darren Aronofsky can make anything twisted and disturbing. Perhaps that's not necessarily tough with ballet, an art form which has long been known to place an exceedingly great amount of pressure on its performers, only to discard them when they get even a hair too old. The amount of discipline required by ballet, both over mind and body, is staggering, to the point where, like boot camp or prison, it can shatter people's perception of themselves.
