Embracing the Dark Energies Within – Black Swan (2010)

The grace and ferocity of Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan burns like a creeping forest-fire, slowly engulfing the reality of subject and audience – resulting in a nuanced hybrid of mythos and psychology that consumes the veil of perfection present in its surface layers. 870 more words


A Look Back: Beaches

“Beaches” is a very depressing movie, though I’m sure on paper it looked more heartwarming. For one thing, only a minority of scenes actually take place on the beach. 511 more words

Black Swan

Wild, woolly, and whacked-out, flamboyant and feverishly psycho, Black Swan is a baroque thriller set in New York’s ballet demimonde; a near-irresistible tale of one ballerina’s psychosexual, phantasmagoric freakout; and a slow creep into insanity with a sensationalistic fairy-tale allure. 605 more words


The Right Stuff

“The Right Stuff” (1983) was nominated for Best Picture and lost to “Terms of Endearment.” Sam Shepard (who plays a badass test pilot) was nominated for Best Actor and lost to Jack Nicholson (who plays a pretend astronaut) from “Terms.” (I’ve never seen “Terms.”) “The Right Stuff” has slipped from the public consciousness. 52 more words
