EP. 401.1 — Black Swan

Amy & Paul reconcile their duality with 2010’s Darren Aronofsky ballet thriller Black Swan! They dissect Natalie Portman’s full-bodied transformative performance, praise the subtly stunning visual effects, and float three theories for what really happens at the film’s end. Plus: What does a swan really sound like?

Next week, tune in as we cover the original Avatar!
