OH. MY. GOD!!!!
Just came back from seeing Black Swan with Little Sis and Best Friend.
Words escape me. It was freakishly stunning. I had a knot in my stomach from the first 10 seconds. I feel like I’ve been chewed up and spit out. Sorry, but that’s exactly how I feel. It’s been a long time since I’ve been that affected by a movie. Likely since Million Dollar Baby.
I wonder how making a movie like that would change not only Nathalie Portman, but the also the whole crew? How could a person return to a light and normal life, like , say, picking up bananas on the way home from work, after visiting such a dark place? And what is it like to be so gifted? If Nathalie doesn’t win an Oscar, I will be very surprised.
Stunning and brilliant. But definitely not for everyone.
I’ve seen The Social Network and The King’s Speech and I loved both of them. But Black Swan is on a whole other level.
Now I need to go to yoga to calm my mind and my energy – I’m definitely suffering from sensory overload!
