Yes, I know I’m a bit late to this party, but I finally saw this movie, and I must state just how much I loved it. After being informed that it was from the same director that brought us Pi, and Requiem for a Dream, it made perfect sense. He did brilliant work with this story.
I don’t want to give any of it away if anyone hasn’t seen it yet and wants to, so I’ll say this film made going crazy a very intriguing and beautiful thing to watch. I was legitimately frightened at times, but couldn’t look away. A friend compared the smooth transition into craziness to Donny Darky and I’d agree… I was left with the same feeling of “woah” in the pit of my stomach.
I want to watch this movie over and over again. My favorite favorite part was perhaps the protagonist’s, final and climactic transition into the Black Swan. It was beautifully done.
