A touch of evil in "Black Swan"
Who: Directed by Darren Aronofsky, starring Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, and Winona Ryder.
What: Two ballet dancers become locked in a bizarre relationship while working on a new production.
Why: Are you kidding? It's a new Darren Aronofsky film. When one of the most exciting filmmakers working makes a film that sounds like an erotic nightmare starring Kunis and Portman, you don't think about it. You don't consider it. You just go and see it as soon as you possibly can, and this is my first priority at the festival.
