Yep, it’s as good as I hoped it would be. Black Swan was amazing. Natalie Portman was incredible. And no, I’m not tired of Aronofsky yet, not when his films entertain me like this. Every single one of his films features a self-destructive antagonist in a psychological battle they ultimately lose. Yeah, they’re all biopic tragedies, but every one of his films also immerses me in an unfamiliar world through solid film-making and further grounds it with acting talent that is borderline genius. I was particularly looking forward to this one because I’ve been a huge Natalie Portman fan since The Professional. This film is visually stunning, emotionally traumatic, and a completely satisfying piece of entertainment. There are some scenes that made me cringe, some that made me wince, and some that made me cry. The entire cast was brilliant. Go see this film.
