 'Lose Yourself': Narrative Instability and Unstable Identities in Black Swan 

Submitted by Adam Pekar on Mon, 10/09/2017 - 11:31

This article discusses narrative instability as a significant dynamic in recent American cinema and focuses on an investigation of the film Black Swan as such a narratively unstable text. After an introduction to narrative instability and its connection to a (post-)postmodern cultural instability in general, I analyze Black Swan as a narratively unstable text that dramatizes previous unstable films' concerns about identity and reality.
