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've heard it has disturbing lesbian sex scenes. I was all for watching it till then. Not that I'm against lesbians, but it was clearly put in there just to stir up some controversy.
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.
SPOILERS (sort of)
Didn't find it disturbing at all. There are much more disturbing scenes regarding violence (one specially with her mom).
I wouldn't judge why is a scene there before watching the movie though.
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 Loveen. I have posted a critical review of Black Swan as well: http://hubpages.com/hub/BALLET-REVIEW-BLACKSWAN.
Wow, what a bunch of prudes on here!
I dreaded the idea of watching a film about a mad balerina, but it was excellent. Not as good as the King's Speech (which I watched the previous week), but still excellent.
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'm planning on watching them both, and I hear The Fighter is good too. Recently watched 127 Hours and thought it was marvelous.
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.
I haven't gotten to see the Kings Speech but I loved Black Swan and the Fighter. Both very good movies and I would gladly watch them both over again!

My personal idea is black swan. Black swan is a girl who dances on stage marries the riches man ever and thinks some one is after. With a twisted plot and 3 golden globe nominies and 3,000,000 people across the world have seen it why wouldn't you see it to. P.S I GIVE 5 STARS.

Just how good is "Black Swan"?I went to the movie "Black Swan" and thought it was amazing. Now I want to know, is it just me or is it really just that amazing?

Do you try to read the book first before watching the movie adaptation?Even if it's a trilogy, like The Hunger Games or Lord of the Rings?

Seriously, what is the point of making disturbing sick movies that contains deformation of the human body or torturing humans. I mean if we have a bit of humanity in us those type of movies should be banned, because even if they don't disturb the mind they plant some very bad ideas in some...
