Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Justin Wagner]

Switching over from wrestling to ballet dancing, Darren Aronofsky‘s latest film, Black Swan, is a thriller about two opposing dancers in an upcoming production of the play “Black Swan”. There are many Lynch-esque moments throughout this trailer. From the “woman-in-trouble” premise to the competitiveness between two leads in an ongoing production, Black Swan seems to play like Mulholland Dr. meets Showgirls, but with the obvious presence of Aronofsky behind the Director’s chair. Much of the same style and camera work presented in The Wrestler seems to be present here in Black Swan though the tone of the film seems to be vintage Aronofsky. If there is one thing to love about this trailer it’s that it still keeps the mystery of the film in tact without giving too much away like most recent movie trailers have been doing. Black Swan will premiere at the 67th Venice International Film Festival this September and will have a limited theatrical release Dec. 1, but for now we have this lovely trailer to watch over and over again in preparation for what looks to be one of the best films this year has to offer.
