When it comes to psychological horror, Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan has to be up there with the very best. Its themes about perfection, adulthood, and inner demons just barely scratch at the surface of Aronofsky’s cerebral monster because much like the protagonist Nina, his film wears many faces. And although that complexity unravels like a slow-burning nightmare, Aronofsky’s intimate and minimal storytelling approach make the film feel all too real.
This piece by Jack Hughes hits all of the right notes—the shattered glass is a perfect depiction of Aronofsky’s vision and a brilliantly subtle nod to the film’s terrifying final moments. It’s also a representation of Nina’s grueling battle with her broken self while her life cracks all around her. Nightmarish stuff.

LOVE. 🖤🖤🖤 BLACK SWAN is one of my all time favorite films. I walked out of the theatre, turned to my bf and said, “let’s watch it again. RIGHT NOW.”, lol. This artwork is perfect.
No matter how many times I watch this movie I find something else to appreciate. An all-timer, for sure!
Nice! I LOVE this movie. It’s one of my all time favourite ‘scary movies’ 🙂
Definitely a great movie that no one talks about!
Except you! Legend!
