Black swan

I watched this movie last night and was a bit surprised. It was one of those movies that could have been great but missed the mark.
The handful of out of the blue extremely vulgar comments where a huge turnoff, and seriously had absolutely nothing to do with the story.
Fort the first part of the movie it seemed like they were trying to do a "Wild Orchid" plot but Natalie Portman is no Carie Otis.
The solo, and girl girl sex scene shouldnt have been in the movie either. They could have spent more time cutting back and forth between the black and white swan character. Nothing wrong with a movie with some sex scenes some are good, some so so, but these really just didnt have anything to do with the movie.

I liked the movie but not as much as I expected to based on the reviews I read beforehand. And to be honest, I didn't understand the point of the girl on girl scene either. Other than it was a way for the Mila Kunis' character to mess with Natalie Portman's characters head. *shrugs* I dunno.

They did really even explore the Mila character's, attempts at sabotage. Or even if there were attempts. As many of them could be seen as Natili's attempt to sabotage herself. Seems like the movie had several half plots like the writer/ director couldnt decide on what story to tell so told several halfway.

I saw it when it first came out, but I remember being left with the ultimate impression that Natalie Portman's character just imploded from all the stress and essentially it was all in her own head.

Personally... I loved it. To me it seemed as if she was constantly shifting between the character of the white and black swan almost as if there was two of her. The movie left me with tons of question and I love a movie that makes the mind work. Portman's character would have been hard to play but I think that she did an awesome job...i would watch it again and again.. if it didnt freak me out soo much haha

Its been a while since I have seen the movie, but I think maybe the girl on girl sex was symbolism for Natalies white side merging or giving into Milas black side. That would be my guess although maybe that would be too obvious.

I usually don't like movies that critics rave about and to me this movie was ok, I was intrigued enough to watch the whole

Wow! I'm so sad that so many didn't like this movie! It was a major psychological thriller that had me wondering some things. It was quite obvious the girl was being abused by her mother. The girl-on-girl sex scene was important as it WASN'T actually Mila's character that that happened with. She wasn't even in the apartment. Natalie's character imagined it as Mila's character to block out what her mother was doing to her. In the moments before that scene you see that the mother makes no remarks towards or about Mila's character being there. And as the sex starts, the mother is no longer banging at the door. ((Considering the mother character, she would not have stopped had her daughter been in the room having lesbian sex.))
Natalie's character obviously has a very fractured mind and takes on other people's personas to try to make sense of her inner issues. The suicide is not surprising. She played the swan, she was beautiful, she was perfect. For that moment in time, she was untouched. That's all she needed.
