The inspiration of this theme comes from the movie" Black Swan" 's posers design. I think you all noticed this already. It is such a great movie, especially the ending part, although I think some parts of it could make even better such as the rhythm of cut, details of heroine's act. But anyway it is one of the best thriller movies in these few years. I think many people have many sides to their character, the worst enemy is your own self in many ways.
So, this is where I put on my little thinking hat. This film was really something that stood out from others I have seen recently, an there are many tat have come out which seem full of special fx but lack story or conviction in its narrative. In recent years the protagonist or antagonist of any story has become a pale shade of a human personality, wooden and stiff, hardly full of any life. Why am I writing about black swan? Well it is a major film and it was something that I loved to see, it moved me. Films for me are very important, they are art in motions, thousands upon thousands of pictures or display in mere seconds created by so much talent in a film crew and spear headed by the director and writers. This film had style and class, the fashion in it is clear and elegant, costume design just was perfect especially when it comes to the black swan herself with the feathers, somewhat comparable to the style of Mqueen.
Stories are the core of any culture, fairy tales , folk lore, novels e.t.c. Stories are a form of wisdom as they contain much guidance of life, for one random example morality. Stories are how we teach one another about certain human behavior or thinking, ideas passed on threw the form of a adventure story. This is why I see cinema not only as moving art but a way to gain wisdom (of course there are also too many horrible films out there that should be burnt). One of the other films that was more closer to philosophy was Inception, stylish and cool film, full of amazing costume design, set design, story board design, design design design... It was amazing, and it felt great to see such a film backed up buy a great story. Black Swan is also like this, full of visuals that give your eyes a great work out, and your mind spiral into thought during film.
Films should be thought provoking, with great cinematography and numerous good quality "designs". It all has to work together..so in my conclusion Black Swan is one of these films.
Something Off Topic - I really love the film industry because of all the talented artists, visual fx designer , fashion and costume designers, Directors and Writers but it is more and more a difficulty to find films that move you in every sense as I mentioned above. So when I do see a film like this, I have to write about it! I can make a long list of films from all over the world that I have seen which have moved me to tears, to joy, to sorrow and then back as if on a roller coster of emotions and feeling. This in the end is what is important as well for any film (and i'm talking about the story now as its individual part of a film), that it be provoking your mind in every way and visual senses.
