Black Swan where to begin. I can’t get this movie out of my head for so many reasons.
I love stories of frailty, and that’s the basis of the entire movie. There aren’t a lot of movies that can depict the frailty of the human condition correctly. I think this one hits it dead on.
Very few people can depict the humanity and stress of being a true perfectionist. Most just write it off as an immature expectation, but this movie shows how it really is something carved into our brains that grows like a cancer.
The only thing that is holding you back is yourself…
It’s the main line in the film and it is ironically suppose to help the main character to release her full potential. In my experience it’s also the line that makes the cancer grow into something even more terrifying.
The movie really gives you a peak into that evolution of the humanity that lies beneath the surface of so many people. It’s in all of us to some extent, which gives reason to why the movie is so popular.
I still haven’t decided if my obsessions with this movie is a good sign or a bad sign. Movies that are a testament to something so real just can’t float to the back of the mind so easily. When I see it I fell like I’m drowning in deep water, and get lost in it’s complexity. I saw a quote on Resca’s Blog
Sometimes it’s nice to get lost every once in awhile.
This obsession is mainly fueled by the idea of getting lost in the complexity of human frailty. Drowning in complexity makes me question a lot of things, but also discover new truths about life and everything that it entails.
