Early Reviews from Venice Film Festival for Darren Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN

Since the trailer debuted online, there have been high expectations regarding Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. The film just debuted at the Venice Film Festival last night and has gotten some overwhelmingly positive reviews. To give you a sense of what the critics have been saying here's an excerpt from a review from Variety's Peter DeBurge:

A wicked, sexy and ultimately devastating study of a young dancer's all-consuming ambition, Black Swan serves as a fascinating complement to Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler, trading the grungy world of a broken-down fighter for the more upscale but no less brutal sphere of professional ballet.

For the most part the other reviews are pretty glowing as well. Aronofsky's films have never been short of praise. From The Wrestler to Requiem for a Dream, he's been making interesting films long enough to gain respect in Hollywood. For more exerts from the films early reviews, hit the jump.
