Don’t Wait For Black Swan‘s December Premiere To Enjoy Arty Lesbian Thrillers

Artsy film director Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler) just released the trailer Black Swan, a psychological thriller where veteran ballerina Nina (Natalie Portman) competes against newcomer Lily (Mila Kunis) to play the lead in Swan Lake. Apparently Portman goes looney and the women make out like wild geese somewhere in the process. But since the film doesn’t come out until December, we thought we’d share five other artistic lesbian thrillers that’ll keep you (in)sane until then.

Now before we begin, here’s a little more about Black Swan for those of you hungry for more fowl play:

Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side – a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

Oooo… creepy. Kinda like Showgirls meets The Company.
