One of my 3 most anticipated films of the year alongside Malick's The Tree of Life and Coens' True Grit. Trailer just came out - looks great. A potential follow-up masterpiece to Aronofsky's The Wrestler, one of my favorite films ever.

replace "Aronofsky" with "Leone", "Ford", or "Peckinpah" and put some cowboy hats on those ballerinas and you guys would be creaming yourselves.

The trailer gives off a vibe nearing that of a corny thriller. I'm hoping for the opposite since I enjoy most of Aronofsky's work.

It takes more than girl-on-girl action to make me want to see a film. There are websites for that sort of thing.

The argument of the intellectually bankrupt. None of those directors would make this film so your asinine comment is completely moot.

With Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis? Where, where?!

I like Requem for a Dream a lot and The Fountain and The Wrestler are ok. I'm waiting for reviews.

Black Swan (2010) - 7/10. Here is the movie exactly: The Red Shoes meets Repulsion, with a bit of Cronenberg body horror tossed in for good measure. Once you realize the theme is--for the thousandth time--the confusion of art and life (which in the film takes about 2 minutes to make itself known) the ending is predictable. Still, the film is hella entertaining; Tchaikovsky's music is used both onstage and off, providing cover for scenes and performances that would otherwise be risible. Aronofsky has successfully re-launched old-fashioned mellodrama (why such a thing should be desirable is another matter,  but the 11am. crowd I saw it with was appreciative). Emerging from the Lincoln Center Plaza cinemas after the show, I was able to look across the street at Lincoln Center where much of the film was set. For a movie in which doubling is such an important technique, this was the best way to conclude.

All I've heard about it concerns lesbian sex, so I'll probably give it a pass.

I've heard that the US Army has used the question "Do you watch lesbian porn?" to rule out gays out of their applicants.  Grin

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I had to post that here though I haven't watched a movie for five days; I've spent my time making 'em.

A very small part of the movie is about lesbian sex specifically; a lot of the film is about sex generally, as the Natalie Portman character, like the Catherine Deneuve character in Repulsion, is sexually repressed. That repression causes her to hallucinate (again, as did the heroine in Repulsion), but ultimately she is able to channel the fruit of her hallucinations into her art.

I don't like Natalie Portman and the director's taste are not my own (I like his initial film and parts of Wrestler) but I'm very intrigued by this.
