COMING SOON: Swan Lake as Psychodrama
My next post will be a review of the powerful new movie "Black Swan". It is an intense and mysterious story of a young ballet dancer's triumphs and downfalls in her pursuit of artistic perfection. I have never seen a film both so gorgeous and so macabre, that manages to walk that tightrope without falling into the ridiculous; nor have I ever responded so emotionally to something so essentially horrific. Part of the fascination has been to understand why I was so moved. I hope it will have been worth the wait!
