Black Swan [8.5/10]

Year : 2010 | Genre : Drama, Thriller
Director : Darren Aronofsky
Writers : Mark Heyman, Andres Heinz, John McLaughlin (screenplay), Andres Heinz (story)
With:  Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis

This is a jaw-dropping beautiful film, which you will probably include either in your “masterpiece list” or in your “bore list”, depending on what type of movie-person you are. Thanks to "Black Swan", Natalie Portman delivers one of the best (if not the best) performances of the year as Nina Sayers, a perfectionist ballerina and her descent into madness after seeing her dream come true. 

The movie starts with a nightmare and continues on an accelerating nightmare-ish route after Nina is selected as the lead ballerina in a modernist production of Tchaikovsky's classical "Swan Lake". The original ballet tells the story of Princess Odette who is turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer. 

Winter's Bone [7.8/10]

Year : 2010 | Genre :   Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Director : Debra Granikr
Writers : Debra Granik & Anne Rosellini (screenplay), Daniel Woodrell (novel)
With:  Jennifer Lawrence, John Hawkes

Ree Dolly is 17 years old. She lives with her mother, sister and brother in a small house in the rural Missouri Ozarks near the Arkansas border. Her father is nowhere to be found. Her mother is mentally ill.  Her twelve-year old brother Sonny and six-year old sister Ashlee have no one to count on but her. They live in poverty and the winter is hard. We watch young Ree cooking, chopping wood, teaching her siblings some math, taking her mother for walks and talking to her without knowing how much (if anything) the woman can even understand. She tries her best to take care of her family, without complaining and without taking brakes.

The Social Network [8.7/10]

Year : 2010 | Genre :  Biography, Drama, History
Director : David Fincher |  Writers : Aaron Sorkin (screenplay), Ben Mezrich (book)
With: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake

If you are familiar with David Fincher you've probably been excited about this film long before its release. Fincher's achievements in directing movies like “Se7en", "Fight Club”, “Zodiac” or “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, turned "The Social Network" into one of the most anticipated films of 2010. Being a Fincher fan myself, I went to the cinema with very high expectations, even though the idea of the movie confused me. I am pleased to report that my expectations were greatly exceeded. In fact, I would say that this is one of his best works to date.
