We’re currently in the middle of a heated debate about a divisive Star Wars film, but earlier in the year we had a moment with a little arthouse picture that got a wide release.

Nothing Will Prepare You For ‘Mother!’ (Movie Review)

It is amazing that a gonzo film like Mother! exists. That doesn’t take away from the many weird movies that are out there, some heralded as masterpieces, but Mother! is not some indie debut or the product of a decade continually spewing out originality. Here is a film full of A-list talent, produced by a […]

Black Swan (Blu-ray Review)

I had my reservations about going to see Black Swan when it was playing theatrically.  I loved the concept, but I hate to admit it, I’m not the biggest Natalie Portman fan.  I know she’s a natural beauty and that she can act, but every time I hear her name I tend to cringe and […]

Portman Taps into Her Dark Side to Become the ‘Black Swan’

I am sorry to generalize, but this is a fantastic film that functions as a terrifically terrifying ballerina drama. While not a horror film, this is essentially a psychological thriller about Natalie Portman going insane. Those who have a tough time not thinking ahead about what the reveals in a film will be, I am sorry if you feel I may have spoiled something (I do not believe I have), but this is a film very much about the physical and emotional stress that a character faces, as she strives for perfection. Add to that the visual intensity that stems from Darren Aronofsky’s direction, and you have another film that will easily earn a place as one of my favorites of the year.
