If someone were to ask me, “do you like ballet?,” my answer would probably be “no.”
…but, on the other hand, I DO like high-maintnance, unusually-flexible, control-freak Ice Queens with self-esteem issues the muscle-strength to kill a man with their calves, so… yeah, I guess I do…
Anyway, Apple has the trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s “The Black Swan,” which no one is even bothering to pretend isn’t better-known as “that movie where Natalie Portman fucks Mila Kunis.” The part you’re looking for is at 1:25.
Portman is hardworking a ballerina who’s waited too long for Her Shot, Kunis is the younger(?) natural-talent understudy who swoops in and effortlessly-overshadows her, driving her all kinds of crazy. So… “Showgirls” from Gina Gershon’s POV meets “Suspiria” crossed with “Mulholland Drive” and bit of “The Fly” right toward the end. On the one hand, looks pretty interesting. On the other hand, show-of-hands as to who’s already A.) sensing a Big Twist and B.) sensing that they know what it is? On the OTHER hand… yeah, I’m in.
