#50 – BLACK SWAN and FANTASIA on Blu-ray

Natalie Portman and Vincent Cassel in 'Black Swan.'

In this week’s episode, John and I discuss the Darren Aronofsky psycho-thriller Black Swan and the documentary Do It Again, journalist Geoff Edgers’ one-man quest to re-unite The Kinks, which plays December 10th through the 12th at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge.

Black Swan is now playing at The Coolidge Corner Theatre.

And for our pick of the week, we agree that Disney’s refurbished Fantasia and Fantasia 2000: 2-Movie Collection Special Edition on Blu-ray is quite the spectacle.
