Darren Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN is closing in on its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September, and so it goes that yesterday its official MPAA rating became official; no one should be surprised that it's restricted baby!

The Natalie Portman/Mila Kunis film nabbed an R rating for "strong sexual content, disturbing violent images, language and some drug use." We all know what that "strong sexual content" is, don't we...

BLACK SWAN focuses on a veteran ballerina (Portman) who finds herself locked in a competitive situation with a rival dancer (Kunis), with the stakes and twists increasing as the dancers approach a big performance. But it's unclear whether the rival is a supernatural apparition or if the protagonist is simply having delusions. The film opens in limited release on December 1st.

Meanwhile, in another piece of "no shit" news, RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE got hit with an R for "sequences of strong violence and language." As all the other RESIDENT EVIL flicks had R ratings, this was pretty obvious. AFTERLIFE hits theaters on September 10th.

Definitely pulling for Black Swan. Resident Evil will do well, if only for the reason that it's shot in 3D. I will always root for Aronofsky though.

Spilled Blood-Black Swan

You ask, "Which flick are you more pumped for?" Black Swan now that I see it has some mustard. I had worried that Aronofsky had directed a sensitive, bland drama. But, no, Black Swan has body and sharpness like Pi or Requiem. Really, Aronofsky mixes the poignant, the pathetic, the peculiar, and the realistic masterfully. He did so in the two mentioned and in The Wrestler and, probably, here. One experiences his works both emotionally and intellectually, and I appreciate them highly for those

BTW, I saved the Portman image. Nice choice.
