Black Swan...

So last week, I went and saw Black Swan. Its one of those films which stay with you as the credits roll up at the end. The highlight of the film along with the soundtrack and cinematography was the acting of Natalie Portman, Natalie's portrayal of the up-and-coming dancer Nina was very believable. The film reminded me of Enduring Love (the adaption of Ian McEwan's novel). There was also something unsettling in watching Natalie's character unravel as she became wrapped up in the demands of her role. Its also impressive that Natalie Portman actually did the dancing herself. Its one of the films which left you with questions about the characters, and events in the film, yet it was so real, I'm not sure I want to see it again.

Yesterday, we had a look at the First Emperor exhibition at the NSW Art Gallery, which was amazing, they had 10 types of the Terracotta Warriors. I found them to be so impressive, given their size, and their unique and detailed faces. Its well worth the visit.
