Black Swan Movie Review

I was not ready for this.

I watched the trailers. I thought it was a drama about a ballerina. I thought Mila Kunis was trying to steal Natalie Portman's part. I thought it was just going to be a normal movie.

I guess I should have known better, though. You don't win at film festivals for being a "normal" movie. And apparently I don't understand the meaning of the genre "thriller."

It was really creepy and I never knew what was real and what was in her mind. Which, I suppose, is the director's point. And as much as a lot of it grossed me out (I can NOT stand the sight of blood), you can't deny that it was an extremely well-made movie, and Natalie Portman definitely deserved that Oscar.

And if you have a crush on Natalie, like I do/have had for years, she's pretty dang sexy (as in borderline graphically sexy) in this movie. And when she's not being half-naked sexy, she's elegantly beautiful:

You know how much I love dancers. That's one of the reasons I fell in love with Isa. And the dancing in the movie was fantastic. Granted, I can't really tell technique, but I thought they were flawless. (I just asked Isa, she confirmed that they were really good.)

As much as I didn't understand a good portion of the movie, I enjoyed watching it because it was so skillfully crafted, and then I really liked the ending. So good.

So if you don't mind some blood and thriller movies, you should definitely see this. Have you seen it? What did you think?
