Black Swan [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Black Swan [2010]

I know, I know, this is the big movie this year, and everyone must have seen it. After so many years Darren Aronofsky finally started getting the recognition that he deserves. But that recognition is gone too far with some people, and he became trendy, which means that every douchebag is going to check out his opus and then yak about him and how he’s great. That is annoying, and has nothing to do with him, but still something had to be said. Personally I think that this movie is a bit pretentious, just a little, but that’s how great movies are made.

Back to the movie, it’s about ballerina Nina, and her life full of sacrifices and questionable rewards. With the new season approaching along with the new production of Black Swan, Nina finds herself in a position to take the lead role. But she will have to make some tough decisions in that process. Again the artistic vision of the director made all the difference and this movie can be watched many times, and still be very interesting. The visual impact is not that strong as in his previous movies, but the story is the key here. It is interpreted and played out very carefully and with great precision, but still it’s not too mechanical. Now, I did not like the movie that much, but I guess that I am currently not so much in the artsy mood. If you get stoned and watch it it will be an amazing experience, also this movie is perfect for viewing with some female company… Enjoy.
