i felt it, i was perfect

I wasn't planning on doing a post this week (with my Psycholgy exam on Friday I was planning on devoting all my attention to intense revision), but after watching Black Swan last night I really felt like I should do a quick post about it.

I can't actually describe how weird or beautiful this film is. From the brilliant director Darren Aronofsky  who has made beautiful, powerful films such as Requim for a Dream, The Fountain and The Wrestler and starring one of my favourite actress' Natalie Portman and briefly featuring another of my faves Winnona Ryder, I do believe this film is a must see. It's direction and plot is so easy to watch and although it has a recieved few criticims, I personally loved it. I also want to stress that although this film is about a ballet dancer, you do not need to be a female and/or into ballet to enjoy this film... I personally hate dance films and I dragged my reluctant boyfriend along to watch it with me and by the end of the film we was both stunned into silence.
Another masterpeice from the brilliant Aronofsky.

Has any one else watched it yet? What did you think?
