      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Bracingly intense, passionate, and wildly melodramatic, Black Swan glides on Darren Aronofsky's bold direction -- and a bravura performance from Natalie Portman.

      Julie and Brandy Autostraddle What were they trying to say? What happened?... You're all pretending you know what it means. Aug 31, 2021 Full Review Phoenix Danger Autostraddle The impeccable casting adds an elevated element of reality to a film that already hits so close to home. Jun 8, 2021 Full Review Deborah Ross The Spectator This is part horror, part thriller, part Freudian nightmare and not a pretty film, as I said, nor an easy watch, but it's so unexpected and out there and passionate it keeps you with it and involved all the way. Aug 30, 2018 Full Review Michael Leader Den of Geek Throughout, we can spot thematic threads from Aronofsky's body of emotionally raw, character-based studies of obsession and tragedy. Rated: 4/5 May 7, 2024 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson The film's slow-boiling pull on you, the audience, builds more and more with a pace and tension that matches the maddening breakdowns of its lead character. Rated: 5/5 Feb 16, 2024 Full Review Yasser Medina Cinefilia Its psychological dialectic is as terrifying as it is paranoid with Portman's formidable performance.

      Lila D So I finally watched this film. I had heard many good things about it, and I sincerely wonder what movie those people watched. This movie was slow and it's point rather muddled. Though Natalie Portman was excellent in the role, she was the only good thing about the film. The story line was hard to follow, since no reason for her decent into madness was ever really explained. And the ending made absolutely no sense, is she dead? Was it all in her head? This movie was trash and I feel bad for Ms. Portman's hard work wasted ln such a pile. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review Shioka O There is some weirdness toward the end, but it's a well-made character study film. Applause for Portman and all the actors. Perfect casting. Best choice when you need stressful and disturbing one. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/15/24 Full Review Dani G Great performance by Natalie. Great job by Aronofsky, very much in its style of growing weirdeness the more we approach the end. Also, we've got to see three of the most beautiful and natural faces of Hollywood (Portman, Kunis & Ryder) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/03/24 Full Review Emma C This movie was good if you want to feel the emotions. I just watched it and I’m literally crying because of the end when she says “I felt it. It was perfect” or something like that. I had some trouble figuring out what was going all tho, it didn’t make much sense. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/01/24 Full Review Yuki O 官能的でありつつしかし女性の内面が徐々に変化していく様を白鳥の湖の善悪の対比と上手く結びつけて表現しており、さらにナタリーポートマンの演技は圧巻だった。素晴らしい映画だったと思う。ただ親と一緒には観れないかも😅 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/21/24 Full Review To F Que buena película enserió! Ese sentimiento y ese terror que da es de lo mejor! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/20/24 Full Review Read all reviews
