watch black swan: RESEARCH

Black swan
On the 28th January I watched Black Swan in the cinema, I found this film both very disturbing and thrilling at the same time. In order to understand the film you had to pay close attention because it did get confusing at some moments. The film was based around a ballet dancer who wins the lead in the production "Swan Lake" and seems to be perfect for the role of the graceful white swan, but not so ideal for the black swan. However with time she slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like the black swan. The film shows two sides of Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman) but like I earlier mentioned the viewer has to pay very close attention. Black Swan is a psychological thriller, which I consider the most thrilling and exciting thrillers because it really questions your mind and make focus on details more.
I liked the opening title sequence of this film because it was a huge contrast to the rest of the movie. The film started without any images but just credits accompanied with orchestra music which signifies purity and gentleness in contrast to the rest of Black Swan because even though some of the dancers are accompanied with soft and gentle music it never as innocent as the beginning. Which just comes to show Nina transforming from a white swan to a black swan. The whole film is quite mysterious, one thing might appear so clear but the viewer later on finds out that might not have certainly happened.
