Great Actor in a Vacuous Movie

Here's Jeanette Catsoulis on 'Black Swan':

For all its dazzling allure, Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, a feverishly psycho thriller set in the hermetic world of classical ballet, proves a meaningless exercise in Grand Guignol exhibitionism.That Natalie Portman does everything but turn herself inside-out to play Nina, a profoundly troubled ballerina, only underscores the vacuity of the film surrounding her: It's a punishing, tutus-to-the-wall performance that screams for more substance than Aronofsky is willing, or able, to provide.

The reviews are about as entertaining as the clips and trailers.
