We dance through Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” and discuss:
- Super 16mm film, and how it affects the story;
- building tension and anxiety;
- and other such stuff and things and stuff.

The Pestle Ep 5: Whiplash
Ok guys, haven’t even finished this episode (have snd love the movie l) and when you seemed unfamiliar with Barbara Hershey (the Mom), I thought of her in “The Stunt Man” with Peter O’Toole. She’s an actress who is used by her director on multiple levels and I guarantee that Aronofsky saw this film! And then you go and mention that you wouldn’t want to be played by the Director so I am recommending https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081568/
The Stunt Man for your personal (nit reviewing) pleasure and would love to hear your reaction to my premise!
Nice! Haven’t actually seen The Stunt Man before, definitely checking that out, I still get Netflix DVDs for just such a purpose. When I think of Barbara Hershey my mind always goes to Beaches, haha. Even looking through her IMDB page I don’t remember her specifically in the other big hits like Hoosiers, Right Stuff, and The Natural (though I remember her character very clearly, odd as that is).
