TraverseTown: if you were expecting subtlety or emotional realism don’t bother. If you wanna be sledgehammered with a fun roller coaster of blatant symbolism that doesn’t say much but asks a lot, this movie is for you. I love both and I still loved this. Not some masterstroke of brilliance, but the ~arthouse~ version of a popcorn flick.
cryptidman117: This is easily the most disturbing movie I’ve ever seen. I was trying to describe it to my friends and that’s when it really hit me how absolutely fucking NUTS this movie was.
First they asked me if JLaw’s tits were out and then I told them “yeah, they were beating her to death and it popped out, this was after they tore her baby apart and ate it in front of her, and even before that Kristin Wiig was shooting people execution style until she got blown up when the US military invaded the house”. Needless to say they didn’t believe me at all, but as you all know, it’s all true.
Just got back from seeing it. First of all, Black Swan is one of my all time favorite movies and Darren is one of my all time favorite directors so I went in with high expectations. And let me tell you that this film met all of them, perhaps even exceeded. I’m still trying to process the entire thing and what the themes and messages were but I don’t think I’ll figure it out until I sit down and watch it closely again. With that being said, Darren truly took some calculated risks here and they were executed amazingly. I’ve never been more on edge and anxious throughout an entire movie, from the first shot to last I was tense and eager to find out more behind the story. The disturbing imagery used and the tone overal made me extremely uncomfortable and I loved it. This is definitely my favorite film to come out so far this year and might make it to my top 5 of all time.
