Movie #2 of 2011: Black Swan

January 13, 2011

Viewed at the AMC Loews Metreon (1st theater movie)

It’s been days since we watched this, and I still can’t say for sure if I liked it or not. The acting was good, the dancing was amazing, but I generally don’t like horror movies. I don’t enjoy being scared or grossed out. And as a lifelong nail biter, the bits with the fingernails were especially horrifying to me. I was fascinated and repulsed, and I suppose that’s what Aronofsky was aiming for.
