Black Swan (2010)
As a white male, I hate dancing. As an American, I hate Russia. So Black Swan isn’t allowed. Anyway, here’s my take. Pay attention, it gets a little tricky:
Lily (Mila Kunis); Nina (Natalie Portman)
Unexpectedly, Nina gets the role, to the dismay of other dancers. Nina starts to crack and go crazy, complete with hallucinations - she begins to think that Lily is determined to take the role from her.
One night Lily shows up to Nina’s house. They go out. Nina falls for Lily, they do it. Next morning Nina wakes up alone - goes to dance class and yells at Lily for not waking her up. Lily LOL’s in Nina’s face - THEY DIDN’T EFF! Nina was hallucinating.
Next night, Nina goes crazy and imagines she is turning into a swan. Flash forward to the night of the performance, Nina shows up and gets dressed. First act goes awful. Nina goes to dressing room, sees Lily. Fights Lily, kills Lily, hides body. Goes out and gives a standing O performance, goes back to her room. KNOCK KNOCK. Who’s There? OMFG!!1 It’s LILY! Turns out Nina was hallucinating again and actually stabbed and may have killed herself. But her performance? AMAZING.
