Sinead, the shot of him holding her in position is super hot.
Sara K, thanks for that. Amazing.
The cinematography for The Black Swan had me riveted from the start. And Barbara Hershey looks deranged in a hat tip to Joan Crawford. Love to see women fighting over art and not a freaking wedding dress.
JJ, my use of the Chick Flick label was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. It’s a dismissive pejorative lots of folks use for movies about and starring women. Black Swan is no Bride Wars. Men will go to see it because Darren Aronofsky’s the director among other reasons.
Sinead, that’s right, she did flash by onscreen. Hope Winona’s not stuck playing somebody’s mother again!
I can’t WAIT for this film. Ballet! Rivalry! Evil mothers! As I was saying to someone on Twitter recently, it’s like a Mandy or Bunty story for grown-ups. With added Vincent Cassell. And Winona, heroine of my youth. Anti-Room outing, anyone?
Ok, this looks like utter trash. But fun trash. The kind you’d watch on a plane because you’ve already seen the entire season of (say) ‘In Treatment’ they’re also offering. Can I have two Jamesons please? Ice, yes, please, that’d be lovely.
