Oscar Worthy Movies

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!
