Now, to be clear, I'm not referring what's commonly known as 'Hype' which has more to do with external excitement and expectations. No, high expectations is about the internal. I am partial to Jamie Foxx as a human being and am irrationally pinning my love for the Academy Award winning actor to his musical talent.
I had high expectations for Black Swan for a few reasons:
- I'm interested in anything Darren Aronofsky does.
- I read The Black Swan ealier this year and kinda jived with what the dude was saying (note: they are COMPLETELY unrelated).
- My friends who had seen it already said they had to decompress afterward because it was so intense.
I have to say though that the casting was really good.
