Ballet movies

Have ya'll noticed, most ballet movies, are kinda messed-up ?

Why is it that ballet has become a medium for -dark thoughts- and women-abuse-plots ??

Black swan,   Nutcracker,   Suspiria.

Tp4 has a clear preference,  Spaceships + Robots + Alien Babes.

However,  after watching over 2000 movies,  ^^^^ Those movies have been exhausted.

Moving on to other categories. Not-selective, just random movies from the pile.



Overall, there's something worthwhile in every movie,  you don't have to watch every second of it.

I've seen the Lobster. LOL...  Seems the plot is already existing in real life, through social media.

The opening sequence of "The Company" is pretty cool.
"At Fox News, on talk radio, and on the web, American conservatives have built a communications system that effectively consolidates in-group identity. Much of the time, the talkers and listeners do not themselves understand what they are saying. They use key words and phrases as gang signs: badges of identity that are recognized without necessarily being understood.

Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, and the others have fenced off conservative Americans from the rest of American society. Within that safe space, insiders hear only what is familiar and comforting. When those protected insiders step outside into the larger world, they find themselves completely unprepared for it."

This is a very complex film, and what is happening on the screen becomes uncanny.

I did ballet when i was three. Oh my goodness were the shoes and nylon pants tight. Due to my weird leg(which that's why i don't play any sports) and my short attention span i immediately dropped out and started developing a hate for any active sport except bowling, golf and walking.
