Please do yourself a favor and go see Black Swan. It was crazy, neurotic, intriguing, sexy, poetic and did I mention crazy? Natalie Portman perfectly portrays the innocence of the protagonist Nina as she falls into a mindless, psychotic state of mind in hopes of becoming a “perfect” lead ballerina. The correlation of the ballet “Swan Lake” in which Nina performs in and her personal life are dead on; the ending connects both storylines seamlessly into one. The movie left me wanting more (how much of the movie really was reality?) but yet satisfied (Mila Kunis + Natalie Portman). Finding a balance between a naive white swan and a dangerous black swan is my new resolution…and future Halloween costume.
On a lighter note (!), check out this hilarious SNL spoof featuring Jim Carrey. 🙂
