I think it’s a shame that, even five years later, a lot of discussion about Black Swan tends to revolve around the dance double thing, because there are so many wonderful things we could discuss instead:

  • Natalie Portman’s brilliant acting
  • The theme of sacrificing yourself for your art
  • The incredible makeup and costuming
  • How disturbing it is
  • The chillingly realistic portrayal of the screwed up relationship between Nina and her mother
  • The fact that the Winter Soldier and Dr. Jane Foster share screen space and have sex:
