Black Swan (2010): Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel
Black Swan is a disturbing psychological thriller based on a ballerina's physically and mentally gruelling role in the ballet - The White Swan. Portman, won an Oscar for Best Actress in 2010 for this movie. The portrayal of Princess Odette, White Swan, is brilliant along with the pirouette into insanity by becoming the Black Swan. The film is deeply twisted and darkly meshed with jealousy, betrayal, lust, self loathing and a crazy parent with a few typical Hollywood movie scenes. Not uplifting or for the faint of heart.
PASS! Unless enjoyment is found wallowing in dreary and depressing stories about dysfunctional personalities. Seeing The White Swan at a ballet theatre seems more promising.

Life is a river. A thriving, glorious flowing body of water that twists and turns filled with fish, beavers, small creatures, birds, eagles, violent eddies, rough waters, and calm pools. Or in our case as human beings doing the best they can as they spend each day rambling down the river of life. An actual river flows downhill from the force of gravity. The waters can be wide and deep or shallow to walk across. This river can be called a stream, creek, or brook. A once serene rushing river can turn into a flooding nightmare covering land, filling houses, and changing landscapes. Just like humanity spinning towards the unknown.
