Hey, it’s another episode of The Decade’s Best Podcast! This week we are looking at one of Darren Aronofsky’s contenders for the list, spoiler: it’s making it, Black Swan! Ballet, body horror and Natalie Portman’s best performance, what more can you ask for? How about incredible editing, visceral cinematography and a score that beautifully weaves horror into Swan Lake. A no brainer, but Ben and I have a great and excited discussion gushing over this film.
