Natalie Portman compares "Black Swan" to "Rosemary's Baby" in terms of genre

    "Like with Repulsion or even Rosemary's Baby, the real value of trip through a subjective perspective is in finding the clues with which to relate the psychic divergence to the world which is at least partly the cause for it. Donnie Darko presents us with a family and community framework which has evidently produced pressures enough on this teenager to drive him to at least one attempted suicide and to therapy with doctor Catherine Ross.

    Kelly is actually quite precise in his employment of signs and signifiers, carefully situating Donnie in this world in ways which allow the movement between realities to suggest meaningful relationships between the two levels of experience".

    "There isn't too much that's known about "Black Swan" director Darren Aronofsky's ballet dancer drama starring Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Winona Ryder.

    a possibility that Portman herself merely addressed as "not explicit in any way," despite the film certainly featuring some "very extreme situations."

    "It's very unique in tone," Portman told MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con when asked to describe "Black Swan" in terms of genre and tone. "I think of it more as a psychological thriller, like 'Rosemary's Baby' in [terms of] genre, if I had to pick a genre."
    Perhaps the comparison to the iconic 1968 Roman Polanski-directed film is particularly telling, as that movie focused largely on the rapid mental deterioration of the titular Rosemary as she learns that her son could very well be the Antichrist. Does that mean "Black Swan" is going to follow a similar, supernaturally and religiously-charged path? That's hard to say at this point — but it is clear that Portman is enthusiastic about the project, previously stating that she signed on for the movie in order to explore her "adulthood."

    Ben Stiller mocks Joaquin Phoenix during Oscars 2009

    "Film buyers were mystified/intrigued by Joaquin Phoenix's "I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix" when they screened it last month.
    The buyers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Phoenix comes off unsympathetically and shows very little talent for music in the movie, directed by his brother-in-law (Affleck is married to Summer Phoenix).

    In some scenes in the film, the 35-year-old Phoenix is trying to get Sean “Diddy” Combs to produce Phoenix’s rap album, but the hip-hop impresario is not terribly interested.

    Another sequence shows Ben Stiller approaching Phoenix about starring in writer-director Noah Baumbach’s “Greenberg” but Phoenix is barely interested. Two buyers who saw the movie were unsure if Phoenix had turned out an elaborate piece of performance art, where the joke was really on the audience".
