For people who don't wanna sit through the script or wait for the film to hit Japan. Spoilers via 'layee' on the Black Swan IMDB board:

The way Perfect Blue and Black Swam relate is mostly through the main characters Mima (Perfect Blue) and Natalie Portman’s character Nina (even notice the name similarity)(Black Swam). The characters are both female leads, tangled in the pop culture of the arts. Mima is a pop idol trying to turn into an actress while dealing with criticism. Nina lands the lead role of the ballet and is dealing with criticism. Both undergo immense physiological trauma stemming from their overbearing female counterparts. Mima suffers from her managers disagreements and criticism due to the fact she was a failed ex pop star. Nina suffers from her mother who at one time was a famous ballerina. Mima (Perfect Blue) begins to hallucinate, haunted by images of stress, sexuality, fame as does Nina in Black Swam. I could go on and on about how these movies are similar -Hope this helped



From Collider:

Darren, how did The Red Shoes influence you and your choices in making this film?

ARONOFSKY: I had heard of The Red Shoes, but I didn’t see it. And then, Scorsese did the restoration a few years ago and I was like, “You know what? I better go and see it.” It’s a masterpiece. It’s an unbelievable film. And I saw that there were similarities in the story, but I think that’s because we both went back to ballet and pulled from ballet for the different characters and stuff, so we ended up in similar places. But, I wasn’t really influenced by it. I really didn’t ever try to be influenced by it because it’s such a masterpiece. The dance sequences were so ahead of their time. I just kept it in the back of my head. It was a long time ago.

Didn't you also note similarities between it and Perfect Blue without saying it was an influence...?

The whole cinema verite, handheld approach to The Wrestler was a big risk to bring over into this ballet film because I had never seen a suspenseful film that had this handheld camera and I didn’t know if it would work.

Sure, you didn't, Darren.

We took the fairy tale and the ballet of Swan Lake and translated all of those characters into characters in our movie reality. It’s really just a retelling of “Swan Lake."

Not the only re-telling...

New clip.

Still no credit....

he's made something that is uniquely his,

Sure, he has...
