Many of you probably noticed that this movie involves ballet — and quickly dismissed it as a boring chick flick.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. Black Swan is a jarring and surreal experience more akin to a horror film of the most disturbing variety. Opposite as you’d expect, you might emerge from the theater loving this film while your girl hated it. Black Swan entails a barrage of visualizations, themes and personalities that evoke reactions within the audience ranging from bewilderment to revulsion.
Some films are quickly forgotten, but you can be assured that imagery from Black Swan will still be swirling through your head long after you leave the theater. If you were under the mistaken impression that this is a good romantic data movie, think again. It depends upon the girl obviously, but the odds are high that Black Swan will tend more to freak her out as opposed to make her hot.
This is despite the fact that the movie is replete with sexuality — often of the most raw and lascivious sort. Consequently, Black Swan is probably not a good idea for a first date movie. If you’re looking for a wild ride and to see Natalie Portman in ways you never dreamed — then check out Black Swan. You won’t be disappointed.
