"Black Swan"

Yesterday I saw "Black Swan"; the latest Natalie Portman movie and one of those with lots of hype and buzz!
As usual, I was less than impressed with it...
The story line was interesting and the concept of the movie made a lot of sense...
Aronofsky does a great job at depicting the idea of "killing whatever represses you" and "unleashing your inner evil", but to my taste, the movie is overly sexualized and the plot got lost in the shuffle...
In addition to that, I was less than impressed with Natalie Portman; she looks extremely skinny (to the point of looking unhealthy) and her acting was exaggerated and off!
On a good note, both the cinematography and sound editing were amazing.. and the dancing was beautiful! Great art direction too!
In my book, the movie gets 2 out of 5 stars!
