feathers, aronofsky, and us.
Both films, on a very basic level deal with inner demons. They also question whether the reality of the characters is actually what is real.
In our case, Ash finds a magical clock (the Animus) that grants his wishes of untimely death…at a price. We tried to balance the circumstances, so one could always question if scenarios were coincidence — or the work of the “Animus.”
In the case of Black Swan, Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis play ballet dancers – performing Swan Lake. In the competition for parts, Portman’s character finds the dark side of herself.
Aesthetically (at first glance) the films remind me of each other. They’re both made with tender-loving-design and eye candy in mind.
Black Swan is in a contemporary setting, and (like all our films) Animus takes place in a magical-mystery-post-apocalyptic-Victorian-mid-eastern-Montana world…BUT…both the characters’ eyes change when evil strikes…and both our leads sprout feathers. Wavelength? I think yes.
Yours for better blogging,
PS: We’re working on a new project, The Way of Blood. I’ll only say this: “Prepare for something awesome, that’s an HH guarantee.”
