Update: 'Black Swan' director Darren Aronofsky has responded with comments. See what he has to say about this whole mess after the jump ...

If you happen to be one of those people who read things about movies on the Internet -- and since you're reading this, it's safe to assume that you are one of those people -- you've surely heard about the entire 'Black Swan' controversy by now. For those of you who may have missed the news, here's what you need to know to catch up.

broke the story: Ballerina Sarah Lane has gone on something of a warpath, claiming that she did most of the dancing for Natalie Portman's role and that the Oscar-winning actress only danced in close-ups, leaving her to do all but 5 percent of the major dance sequences (which saw Portman's head digitally grafted onto her body). Naturally, Ms. Lane thinks she deserves due credit, since many people (including Portman's choreographer fiancee) have emphasized Portman's dancing contributions.

And that's where a potential debate can begin.
