“Black Swan” Opens Venice, Wins Raves
September 1, 2010 § Leave a comment
I’ve already talked about Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan a bit, and it’s definitely one of my most anticipated films of the fall Oscar season. Last night it opened the Venice Film Festival and this morning the first reviews hit the web. So far the general consensus has been overwhelmingly positive, with many reviewers calling it Aronofsky’s masterpiece and labeling Natalie Portman as a lock for Best Actress. These should put to rest the early concern that the thriller was too “genre” for the Academy.
Awards Daily has a nice summary of the major reviews so far.
