Corey Goes to the Movies Part I

Black Swan © Fox Searchlight
By Corey Breen

I'm a big fan of Darren Aronofsky, especially The Fountain and also Requiem for a Dream and he doesn't disappoint in The Black Swan. Just love the look and feel of this film. He always does a great job of capturing an eerie, dark side of life and questions about the human condition. The Fountain was such an AMAZING film, that I think a lot of people missed, so if you haven't seen it, please do yourself a favor and go out and rent it, or even buy it, because it is such a great film that will stay with you and make you think for LONG after it's over. I still refer to that film whenever I think about the meaning of life and religion and that film really makes you feel like the answers are really on the tip of our minds.

The Black Swan is more about one person's personality and how someone tries to reach for perfect in life, yet it's such a fine line between living and crossing the line, and how powerful the mind really is. So again, Aronofsky is just so amazing at getting those feelings and ideas out in his films, that they are such a marvel to watch and think about long after they are over. Those are some of the best films in my eyes, the ones that really go so much deeper then the surface. Such a good film, so check it out.

Hope you enjoy the pic, too!
