Black Swan

Review: Black Swan

Didn't live up to the hype

Although the acting performances were brilliant I thought the storyline left something to be desired. There was little character development (the lead character starts off unlikeable and a little unhinged and gets more so in both regards) - I found it impossible to empathise with any of the characters.

The story was also fairly predictable - there were no big surprises - and I found the symbolism a bit "film school" - obvious and not very well developed.
