We have a thread like this for books, so I thought I might start one for movies
I go to the cinema almost every week, and have done so ever since I could afford to.
Anyway, I saw Black Swan last night, so I'll get the ball rolling....
A ballet dancer wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile the Black Swan, daughter of an evil magician.
The extreme close-ups for the majority of the film really bring out the raw emotion that surrounds the world of ballet. Be warned, this movie is not for everyone. This psychological thriller is very "in your face" in every possible way. There are few sex scenes (including a lesbian scene), and whilst they dont show too much skin, it would certainly be enough to make you feel extremely uncomfortable watching the film with your mother.
I would have to say this would be the best movie I've seen in quite some time. Natalie Portman is absolutely brilliant, and I am sure she will collect many awards for her role.
