Black Swan

Just got back from seeing this (I posted this on my journal a long time ago!). I am shaking. It is pretty mind-blowing.

It is a very dark film that takes you down into the depths.

It has an evil mother. Her own career as a dancer came to an end when she gave birth to Nina. Their relationship is riverting. And terrifying.

I guess all I wanted to say about this film is that it is the most shocking, horrifying, disturbing and terrifying depiction of psychosis I have ever seen on the big screen. There are some key scenes in this where visuals and music combine to give a killer punch in the stomach. There were sharp intakes of breath from across the audience.

I have direct personal experience of psychosis and mental meltdown and this portrayal of it was the most realistic and true to life I have ever seen on the big screen.

A dark, intelligent, adult film. Highly recommended.
