The Black Swan and Art

I wrote a post about the movie The Black Swan over at Montevidayo.


"But Nina succeeds in the end precisely not by being fucked. She’s a big success, literally transforming herself into a black swan on stage. The way to this success is not by sex, but through a couple of other means: Fantasizing about *homosexual sex* (with Lily) and, much more importantly, fantasizing about killing Lily (Art is Crime, as Joyelle likes to say). Art is fantasizing. She doesn’t actually have sex, but she imagines (homosexual) sex. She performs, but she performs so well she herself can’t tell the real from the fantasy. Art is quite convincing!"
