A nice selection of mini updates this evening.
– Let’s begin with Black Swan, which apparently ruffled some feathers after receiving the most complaints in 2011 after it aired on the BBC. The main cause of offense was not face stabbing and body mutilation, oh no, it was lesbian sex. Slam your foreheads against your keyboards in 3…2…1…
“While the scene is visually discreet, narratively justified and within the 15 guidelines criteria, some correspondents felt it was pornographic in nature,” said the report.
“That it was a sex scene between two women was an aggravating factor for some who argued that portrayals of homosexual activity should either be restricted to the 18 category, or not shown at all.”
– Natalie returns to the stage…actually, Natalie kinda IS the stage in Natalie Portman: The Musical.
– Finally, Natalie wasn’t there but you guys might be interested in seeing Christian Bale filming a Knight Of Cups night club scene with DJ, Paul Oakenfold.
