What did you think of the Black Swan american film?

I liked it for what it is. A film. A fiction. And ballet world just give the story right atmosphere and add more mystery into it.
And seriously I was kind of tired of all the dancers moaning about how the REAL ballet world doesn’t work like this and that ballet dancers aren’t psychos and this and that… For god’s sake it is a film! A thriller. Not a documentary. Calm down.

But on the other hand – I understand their complaints. Ballet world and ballet life is sort of mystery for most of people. So while spectators are able to tell that, for example doctors in real world don’t work like in let’s say House MD, because they have some experiences with real world hospitals, they mostly do not have the same knowledge on ballet world, therefore they might think Black swan is a relevant source for it… Or something.

For myself I quite like the film, there was some real dancing by real dancers which is more than one could ask for and I believe there would be more than one person who took interest in ballet based on watching Black swan, so it’s cool right?
