TIFF ’10: ‘Black Swan’ blows me away


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: I have no time. Absolutely none. I’m running to the next screening. But I tweeted the following on Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” and wanted to share it with you here:

@Sean_OConnell BLACK SWAN: Unreal. Aronofsky is the master of those consumed by their ambitious dreams. Hard to imagine seeing a better film at #TIFF10

I totally understand when Aronofsky says it is a companion piece to “The Wrestler.” It’s very, very similar. And yet, it is its own beast. But what a beautiful, devastating beast.

I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say. Just know it’s special. Very special. I can’t wait to see it again, and write about it extensively later.

Off to the next film!
