Black swan features Natalie Piortman and Ma kunis (The Book of Eli) and is about Nina's (Natalie) role as the new queen swan. She is a mentally unstable ballerina and Although the storyline starts out with an intreging dance duet, and keeps you guessing through the movies progress, it falls flat in the morality and cleanliness. With the F word being said over 10times and numerous sexual inuindo and sex scenes it is a skip for sure.
I agree about stiring up and controversy, but in my opinion the scene really was connected to the story, although I think that it should have been done differently and less explicit, that would be much better.
I agree. I didn` think there would be so much disturbing scenes. I thought that one when she was ripping her skin of (when she broke her nail or something like that) was terrible. Especially when you watch it in cinema on a huge HD screen and surround system
I don't need to watch it to know why it's there. Why do you think they show explicit sex in films? Just hinting at it and showing them lying in bed afterwards would get the point across, but they put it in there because sex sells. The lesbian aspect just makes people talk about it more.
I agree with you, Black Swan was excellent. The best film I've seen in a long while...I can't remember when I last left a theater so pumped with adrenaline and as anxiety-riddled as Natalie Portman's character that I felt it might be a little unsafe for me to be driving a car.
Well I've just written a hub regarding the discussed scene and why after watching the movie twice, I think it's more than justified. It contains spoilers, but if you're not planning to watch it anyway you might be interested to read.
thanks for the insight on this movie. I feel compelled to see it since it is up for a handful of Oscars although this is not "my type" of movie. I've chosen The King's Speech and True Grit the last few times to the movies but will see Black Swan at some point. Thanks again. The two movies I've mentioned are terrifc and worth seeing.
I saw The Figher before the first two I mentioned and loved it. I like Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and I grew up fairly close to that area. I was familair with the Irsih Mickey Ward story and wanted to see how the movie portrayed his life. Also heard 127 hours was terrific and is next on my list if and when I find the time. It's a rush to see these all before the Oscars.
