Speechless...and a Wish!

Okay folks...I am speechless about the movie that I endured for 2 hours last night!  When I say endured I mean it with a little affection, admiration, and a dark and twisty love!  Black Swan is one of those movies that was truly painful to watch but I kinda want to see again!  It's a strange thought, I know!
Natalie Portman...WOW!  She is amazing!  She trained over a year for this role...and boy, you could tell!  She could not have weighed more than 90 lbs. soaking wet.  And, I could sit through an entire ballet with Natalie Portman as a principal dancer...she fooled me!  Kudos to her for her performance and for the many awards she will win for this role!

I can't really say much about the plot because if I am being totally honest the verdict is still out!  I left so confused!  In fact, I came straight home and searched the internet trying to find a synopsis, interpretation, explanation, ANYTHING...and I found nothing!  To say that this movie's conclusion is "open-ended" is an understatement! 
However, if you are looking for a recommendation then I would say YES, you've got to see it for yourself!  As for my opinion on the movie...this SWAN is still is the pitch-BLACK dark! ;)

Now for my wish- I totally wish I were going to Blissdom next week!  Call me crazy, call me a dork, I just wish you were calling me in Nashville on January 26th!  Who knows...maybe next year! :)
