Captive to Craft: The Red Shoes and Black Swan

Black Swan definitely plays similarly on the themes that dominate The Red Shoes. Obsession to the point of submission to their arts of dancing, captivates both Nina and Vicky to the point that their lives are the ultimate sacrifice. Black Swan borrows a lot of its thematic visuals and I felt that Arronofsky certainly invites a visual comparison.
