The photographs of Andrew Macpherson

Natalie Portman ()

Why you might ask am I posting a picture I took eight years ago? Well, because this post isn’t about my picture, it is about hers.

I just saw a screening of Black Swan, and it is without a doubt the most extraordinary film I’ve seen in ages. I had no idea what to expect, and was swept away on a roller coaster ride that horrified and delighted in equal proportion. I won’t give away any of the story, but I will say that the acting, directing, editing, music, costumes, and make up were all on another level of exceptional. This is storytelling and film making at its absolute best, a future classic, a real high water mark, and most of all an incredible performance by Natalie Portman. Yes, we all know she can act, but trust me, she goes somewhere else here, a virtuoso on a whole nother level. This film is an absolute must see, go see it!
