A pretty cool wish fulfillment story. Bradley Cooper carries the film, and it features some nice visual gimmicks to represent the changes that his character undergoes. Robert De Niro meanwhile might as well have not bothered turning up, his character is surprisingly under written. In the end, it’s a bit of a mix between “Wall Street” and “Fight Club” – but without the twist.

Black Swan

A bit of a disturbing, kind of messed up film. I feel a little conflicted – I came out of it feeling adamant that I didn’t like the movie. But at the same time I felt that the movie conveyed a great sense of anxiety and paranoia, courtesy of some great direction from Aronofsy, and a great performance by Natalie Portman. So did I not like the film, or did I not like the feeling of anxiety and paranoia that the film presents? Maybe that was the point. I would definitely recommend someone watch it to see for themselves.
