Black Swan.

Did you see Black Swan? I think my feelings would be best expressed by a scene from the 1990’s sitcom, Seinfeld.

“I didn’t realize until recently that every time we [delayed our start date], Natalie was going, ‘another three weeks of carrot sticks and almonds! I’m gonna kill you!’ So she really was tortured pretty badly because we had such a hard time getting the money for the film.” – Darren Aronofsky

What’s even more crazy than being a ballerina playing a swan, then becoming an actual swan, then starving yourself  in real life in order to play both swans? Women wanting to become that tortured swan…or at least look like it.

  1. Honestly, one glance at the marketing for this movie was enough to tell me that this was not a film I wanted to see. SIngle White Female en pointe–who needs it? It felt old and done, and the ways in which it didn’t seem old and done, it seemed nasty.
