Can't stop thinking about Darren Aronofsky's masterpiece Black Swan -- for any number of reasons.  I am still putting together a formal review, but I know that multiple viewings will be required to truly dissect this amazingly powerful cinematic creation.  Matthew Libatique's stunning cinematography in tandem with some extremely clever visual effects help contribute to a general atmosphere of dread, anxiety, and unease.  Melding a pyschosexual thriller with the melodramatic tale of a mentally and physically tapped ballerina losing her mind over her art, Black Swan is an unsettling and unforgettable film, powered by a bravura lead performance by Nathalie Portman and fantastic supporting work from Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey, and Vincent Cassell.  I can't wait to delve into this mysterious, sexy, and brilliant piece of work again and again.

"Can't stop thinking about Black Swan" has been common for me the past few weeks
