The Black Swan  

Hubby and I watched the highly acclaimed movie, the Black Swan last nigth. I think we are the only ones who absolutely disliked the movie. I found it boring and unable to convey mental illness properly. It had some porno scenes that hubby liked, not because they were titilating, but because, according to him, Natalie Portman conveyed orgasm realistically. I loved the music, that's all.

I found the movie confusing and both hubby and I found that we were unable to tell what was real and what was fantasy. I know that they were trying to make us see the world according the the ballerina's mind. But seriously, I found the movie, The Beautiful Mind, accomplishing that much more smoothly. What of waste of my hours of watching.

I find it interesting that the initials for Black Swan is BS.

You're not the only one. I couldn't stand it either. I tried to like it but by the end I knew nothing more than I learned in the trailer.

I am glad to hear this. I felt totally cheated. So many people raved about it. I'm sure it's them and not me.

I liked this movie but I wouldn't call it great. I'd file it under the category of "Okay".
I haven't seen "A Beautiful Mind" though and I'd like too, it's on my list!

This was one of the movies I wanted to see, along with Inception. I did see Inception and had a similar, though not quite as bad reaction in reverse. I was expecting confusing greatness and got simplistic brain candy. And I used to trust Ebert movie reviews, too. Now I don't feel so bad for having missed the theater release. Though I do wonder if the amount of confusing in BS would make up for the amount of simplicity in Inception...
