Regarded as one of the classic films of the early 20th century, The Red Shoes is a treasure of the cinema. The film follows a woman who is battling between the love of her life and her love for the ballet. The film has been seen as an inspiration for many other photographers and filmmakers. Namely, Alex Prager has been heavily inspired by the film for her own work. Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan was also inspired by the film. After viewing The Red Shoes, I can easily see its motivational qualities.
My Rating: B-
