(Final?) Thoughts on Black Swan, and Special Effects Revealed

My reflections on Black Swan are in this month’s issue of The Brooklyn Rail, so I hope you’ll check it out along with the other dance articles in the paper.

I’m nearly ready to put Black Swan to rest, but I recently came across the below video that Fox Searchlight just posted, showing how some of the special effects in Black Swan were made.  Finally, we see how Natalie Portman pulls that feather out of her back, and what it took for her character to grow wings on stage in one of the final scenes.
