Can a movie like this get such high reviews? Have you seen Black Swan? I know that there are many views of what is ART. And many people see different things when they see the same movie, art, book… but, I went to this movie after hearing just bits & pieces of reviews, with people saying how wonderful this movie is. PLEASE! I want my $9 back & I wouldn’t sit through that movie again if you paid me $100. I went to see this with 3 friends/neighbors while our Hubby’s had “Guy’s Poker Night”. One was the neighbors 18 year old daughter… OH MY!!!!!!!!!
I was embarrassed to sit there & watch the sexual scenes. I mean really, it would have been more than I wanted details to see of a male/female intimate scene but, between 2 women… WAY MORE VISUAL THAN I EVER NEEDED!!!!!!!! And then let’s talk disturbing scenes like a bleeding cuticle on her finger that she starts pulling on until it’s a gushing bloody mess… Not enough, OK! A possessive wacko mother (who sleeps in the room to watch over the daughter) that takes scissors to a 20 something year old dancer to keep her from scratching & wacks the top of her finger off. Not bloody/gruesome enough? So the star dancer goes to visit a fellow troupe member in the hospital (who happens to have thrown herself in front of a car when she no longer is the star of the show) with gruesome wounds shown in that scene… so said stars stabs the wounded girl in the face with a metal nail file.
Are you wanting to spend $9 yet? WHEN did this become star worthy? Where is our culture going that we reward or hipe this sort of behavior? Making this something we give awards to???????? I’m confused. I think I better go get back on The Good Ship Lollipop. I like things to be pretty, romantic, happy, beautiful…. I know the world can’t always be beautiful but, I sure don’t want my $$$$$ going to see this sort of darkness. I don’t mean to offend anyone, and I love that we all have the right to have our own thoughts but, really… really… If you were thinking of going to see what the hype is about… think twice is this the sort of movie you like? I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts.
Have a Beautiful Day! Charlene
