The Black Swan Review 
One is only limited to their own mental barriers. Yet to get past those mental barriers one must embody their chosen endeavor with FULL dedication. Life is full of opportunities to be seized, yet to obtain the prize there are almost always great sacrifices. Black Swan reveals this ideal with amazing clarity and detail for audiences.  
   Nina Sayers(Natalie Portman) plays the role of a young woman with serious mental boundaries in her ability to become a woman of the world, pertaining to the Black Swan. She is competing with another young woman named Lily(Mila Kunis), who she believes is attempting to steal her role by whatever means possible. Her whole life Nina had been cast as the "nice girl" in reality and on stage. Lily, who is a natural at capturing the Black Swan's sensual essence is her "friend" yet opposing force. For once she found herself with the biggest opposing forces of her life- letting go of her innocence and loving mother's grasp and giving into worldly desires. Hallucinations due to surmounting stress begin which are so intense they begin to change her perception of herself and those around her. This translates to the intense outcome of the ending product of the movie. The film is a very thought-provoking thriller that left me impressed and always guessing. This along with True Grit, possibly more so, could go down as a classic.

Coen Brothers Interview at Soho Apple Store for Box Office hit "True Grit"
Classics such No Country for Old Men and O Brother Where Art Though will forever be instilled in history as all-time greats. After listening to the brothers during an interview at the Soho Apple Store, it was very hard to understand any depth of their process due to their lack of "passion". Either the two men hate interviews or are very nervous in front of audiences, I'm unable to determine. The Coen Brother's influence in the movie business has been in steady inflation since the early 80s, and now have embarked on a new venture for the movie True Grit. The movie features A-lister Jeff Bridges as the lead. It has revealed itself to be a box office success and another possible classic. I have seen the movie and insist one gives it a gander, you won't be disappointed.

The Music Palace
Widely known among the top musicians in the game, the Music Palace serves as one of top studios in the nation with a multi-million dollar investment status. Their client list ranges from Seal, Mariah Carey, Busta Ryhmes, and Vanessa Williams to name a few. After my good friend Mia Koo, lead singer of the Kung Fu Girls and music producer took me to see the "Palace" for myself, I understood why it was given the title. Owner Michael Angelo was kind enough to give a grand tour of the place and conversate about many aspects of the music business.
