I didn’t really need to be sold on “Black Swan”. It’s directed by Darren Aronfsky who is one of my favorite contemporary filmmakers. It stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, two talented and beautiful actresses. It has an intriguing premise of a ballerina competing against a rival dancer who may be another version of herself.
But a recent script review says that Portman and Kunis have “ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex”. I’m bad a box office predictions but I will say with complete confidence that this will be Aronofsky’s highest-grossing film to date. Hit the jump to find out more about ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex.
Script reviewer Carson Reeves of Scriptshadow has posted his thoughts about the current script for “Black Swan”. I didn’t read the full review because I consider them more fascinating after the film comes out but if you read it now you’re basically spoiling the entire plot (unless there’s a massive re-write and with an indie flick from Aronofsky, I don’t see that happening).
Here’s Reeves full quote regarding Portman-Kunis-angry-sex:
Can I just tell you why none of my review matters? Can I just tell you why my review is absolutely pointless?
Because in this movie, Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis have sex.
Yeah. You read that right. And not just nice sweet innocent sex either. We’re talking ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex. Yeah so…this movie is already on the must-see list of 2010. But how good is it? Does the story that surrounds the sex disappoint or excel?
I’m still excited for the entire film and I know this isn’t a ploy for heterosexual males like “Wild Things”, although I’m sure the sex scene between Portman and Kunis will be excerpted and watched at least as many times. I look forward to seeing their performances throughout the film and I love them for their minds. But I also really want to see them have sex because I’m a man who has a pulse and digs the ladies.
He also mentions that the film is a slow burn and perhaps so slow that viewers (or at least readers) may lose interest. But Reeves and I both have complete confidence in Aronofsky’s ability and what may seem like indulgence on the page is not an obstacle but an opportunity for his direction. Oh, Reeves says that the film is “steeped in darkness”. That sounds like an interesting departure for Aronofsky and may be a refreshing change from his previous slapstick comedies.
