Black Swan

I've done some additional research on other thriller films and the film that i found most interesting was the new conglomerate film "Black Swan

"I had the craziest dream last night, about a girl whose turned into a swan, she needs love to break the spell, but her prince falls for the wrong girl and.. she kills herself"- These are the opening lines of the trailer, which i think are really powerful because it has just summed up the whole story and whats going to happen.
Natalie Portland
The film is about a young girl who is passionate about ballet who finally gets the chance to play the lead role in  "swan lake" which is about a girl who is a delicate little swan but slowly looses her mind and becomes like the black swan oldie. The actress Natalie Portland imitates the story line so well because its a strange transformation that the audience see happening, one minute she's a normal girl trying hard to progress and live up to her lead role and then suddenly she becomes so wrapped up in being "perfect" that she turns into a obsessed sexual object which concludes with her killing herself just like how the ending of the ballet story happens.

This film creates suspense because it always has the audience trying to guess whats going to happen and then what the audience believe would happen, doesn't. its a psychological thriller because it messes with our minds and trick us into believing things that dont really happen, just as it does to the actress playing the role, making her believe that she is seeing two images of herself hen really its all in her imagination because she has turned crazy.
