Just something to bear in mind...,
This review is from: Black Swan [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
As so often happens, people review the DVD/Blu-ray release instead of the actual film. I saw this in the cinema and was totally immersed in it - it's the kind of film that needs the volume turned up so you can swim in the gorgeous music and the lights off so you have nothing to visually distract you. "But a good film shouldn't distract me anyway!", you exclaim. True, dat. But a good film should be approached with respect (you'd do the same for the Godfather, right?), and besides, it's not shameful to admit that some films are enhanced by the support of their elements, be it the scoring, CGI, SFX or whatever.
I'm not saying this film is mindblowing, nor am I saying it's cowpat. But I enjoyed it for what it was - it entertained, even if sometimes for the wrong reasons.
So before you slate this film, watch it properly. Watch it all. And give cinema the respect it deserves.
