Black Swan

Press screenings for “Black Swan,” starring Natalie Portman, are under way today and the first reviews are showing up on Rotten Tomatoes. The film debuts tonight at the Venice Film Festival. So far, it’s gotten two good reviews and one not-so-good. Here’s the run-down so far:

Hollywood Reporter: “Trying to coax a horror-thriller out of the world of ballet doesn’t begin to work for Darren Aronofsky.”

IndieWire: “With Natalie Portman, in the demanding leading role, equaling her director in unquestioned commitment, the central issue for the viewer is how far one is willing to follow the film down the road to oblivion for art’s sake.”

Variety: “A wicked, sexy and ultimately devastating study of a young dancer’s all-consuming ambition.”
