Manic Swan

Black Swan (USA, 2010)
dir. Darren Aranofsky
rating: ✶✶✶

A relentless film about an artist's descent into hallucination, self-mutilation, and madness with scenes of bulimia, hysteria, lesbian fantasmes, it is a horrible imposition on the viewer and distortion of the ballet world. I hate this film that bizarrely hijacks a great classic ballet.
