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.

Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting. You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime. Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn. Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty. Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact. Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis. The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines.
