Except for some old movies I watched at home, the last movie I watched was Burlesque back in February. As much as I wish to watch a movie in the cinema, time and some other factors have been stopping me to do that. Even this award-winning Black Swan was a movie I watched in Taiping on my lappy.
I've heard so many good reviews about this movie. Yes, it is a very disturbing movie, very tense and you would vividly remember most of those scenes in the movie just because they are disturbing. The story about Nina having all the pressure of dancing as the main character in Swan Lake turned her into a psycho is to me, very realistic and the way it was translated into the movie is somehow very interesting and yes, 'disturbing' is the word.
I like the lighting and the cinematography a lot. But nothing can beat the strong cast! Natalie Portman was awesome and she deserves the Academy Award for that! Vincent Cassel also gave a very unforgettable performance but the one who surprised me and many is Mila Kunis. She looks like she is just the real Lily without acting it out!
Well, to me it is a brilliant piece of art! But it is more to a self-centred movie, which is why I think it didn't win the Best Film at the Oscar. They normally love things that involve whole load of people, like a community, a country, or even the entire world.
