Black Swan - It Begins!

This week officially kicks off the piece of film industry greatness that is Black Swan. Black Swan got the week off to a good start by scoring 4 nominations at the Independent Spirit Awards: Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Cinematography. (Winter's Bone led the pack with 7 nods.)

Black Swan opens in Toronto this week. It won't be in Ottawa until December 22nd, though. The soundtrack was released this week too, so one can always enjoy Clint Mansell's terrific score until then. I'm eager to listen to it back to back with Inception. I've made up my as to which is the better movie, but as to which is the better score remains to be seen (or heard...). Unfortunately, the HMV in my 'hood didn't get the Black Swan soundtrack, so the jury will be out a bit longer...They did have the soundtracks for 127 Hours and Requiem for a Dream for 2 for $20, so the trip was not in vain.

A great and unusual trailer was released for the soundtrack...enjoy!
