I hope I will not be thought of as a coarse Philistine for not praising this film. I confess that I am not a devotee of the ballet; indeed, I have attended only a few performances. I once appeared on stage reading the narration of Peter and the Wolf, which I enjoyed a lot, and I also loved the movie The Red Shoes. However, I would have preferred if Black Swan had included more dancing or more Freud, but there wasn't enough of either to engulf the senses. For my full review, click below.
