I never knew ‘Black Swan’ was a ‘body horror’ film

Black Swan (2010) is a psychological thriller directed by Darren Aronofsky featuring body horror scenes (self-injury, Nina growing feathers) and an unreliable narrator.

It is World Cinema Classic #225.

P.S. The black swan is also a trope in philosophy.
