Meh.

It's not like Black Swan is leading in Oscar and other noms or anything.

"In Association With Lee Press-On Nails" in the credits. Woof.

God, I was in tears watching this movie I was laughing so hard. I dunno how so many camp connoisseurs that I know didn't find it ridiculous. I know it's Sirkian in the sense of having it's soap and eating it too, but most who find the silly in the over-the-topness of it seemed to have submitted to it's horror.

So weird. I imagine this is what it would have been like watching Imitation of Lufe when it first came out.

In what way did Showgirls not make sense?

For those who need it (not me, I'm at home), a NSFW warning is in order.

@7 for Black Swan? yeah.

Damn, I have a very unironic appreciation for all those boobs.

10: I hope this news doesn't make you want to kill yourself, but Sylvia O'Stayformore threw a Showgirls-themed Bacon Strip a couple years ago. (I had to miss it, unfortunately, and don't know how it went, but I know it happened.)

I really wanted to like Black Swan (and I DID like the gratuitous scene with Kunis and Portman) but was it aiming for nuance, subtlety or high art? It failed then. If it was a Showgirls tribute, that makes much more sense.
