OWF's Rob Beames landed at the Venice Film Festival yesterday and has shot through his first knee-jerk reaction of Darren Aronofsky's psychological ballerina thriller which has opened the fest; Literally at the press conference for Black Swan. Best film I've seen all year. Left me devastated, excited, tense and emotionally drained. Tarantino will be a fool if he doesn't give this the Golden Lion (unless something even better is coming up!). Aronofsky has made his first masterpiece and Portman must now be favourite for the Oscar. A perfect film that blends The Red Shoes with Antichrist, via Cronenberg.
