1st movie blog-critique

B L A C K S W A N

The forces of innocence and evil clashed mightily.

The screenwriter(s) and director were the real swans; they pushed the movie majestically beyond normality.

Natalie Portman found herself nominated for Best Actress for the right reasons.

Watching Natalie manipulate her own body was not as awkward as me watching this movie amongst 4 girls.

  • The message I got from this movie: Worldly perfection may be temporary, but never eternal.
  • The evidence: New “Swan Queens” will emerge. Careers are short lived. Beauty subsides. Natalie may have gotten a standing ovation, but years down the line, it is all but a memory.

Not to be pessimist, but thinking about the world makes me so. Thinking eternally with a divine purpose makes me optimistic.

Nonetheless, great movie!
