“I think it’s time for a dance movie with a happy ending, where a ballerina actually takes pleasure in performing. Where she stays psychologically on balance and enjoys camaraderie with her fellow dancers. Where she finds satisfaction in her career.” — Wendy Perron, editor-in-chief of Dance Magazine, on what would no doubt make a boring dance movie.
For the record, some people are a bit surprised that Black Swan isn’t just a dancing movie, but is actually a psychological-sexual thriller or sorts. I wonder if the marketing department is really doing their job.
