One of the winning characteristics of Darren Aronofsky‘s latest film Black Swan is that it does not often look like an effects-heavy movie. Great pains were obviously taken top make the film appear very real-world and grounded, the better to emphasize the feelings of paranoia and psychological disorientation that plague Natalie Portman‘s character as the film goes along.

But this is a digital age, and a new demo reel from the effects company Look FX does a great job of showing how digital effects were incorporated into the film to enhance the story and atmosphere beyond the more obvious manipulations that are evident on your first viewing. Note for those who’ve not yet seen the movie: there are some big spoilers here. Read More »

In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, David Chen and Adam Quigley respond to some of your feedback from our Black Swan review, and discuss some of the more wild interpretations of the film. Special guest Alison Willmore joins us from IFC.

You can always e-mail us at slashfilmcast(AT)gmail(DOT)com, or call and leave a voicemail at 781-583-1993. We’ll be back on Sunday (01/16) at 10 PM EST / 7 PM PST at Slashfilm’s live page to review The Green Hornet.

The last big indicator of how the Oscar nominations are likely to shake out is the nomination set for the Director’s Guild of America’s award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement. The DGA and Best Director Oscar awards often line up directly (there have been only six deviations since the DGA awards began in 1948) and before the Best Picture Oscar set was widened to ten films, the DGA nominations were a very good indicator of how that race would go, as well.

Now the 2010 nominations are out, and for the most part they conform to the well-established 2010 awards consensus. See the list below. Read More »
