The Black Swan was a truly dark yet satisfying film.I say that because through the film whatever the character played by Natalie Portman experiences is only to bring out the dark side of her personality which is crucial not only to what happens in the film but what happens to her as an individual in the film.
Coming to Heath Ledger who played the most amazing , I would also take the liberty to say the most believable joker till date, I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the characters played by Natalie portman in Reel life & Heath Ledger in Real life.
Let me put Heath Ledger in the place of Natalie Portman, what do you get? an actor who achieved perfection for his role as the menacing lunatic THE JOKER in the highest grossing batman flick The Dark Knight. My question is at what cost? I’m certain that there would have been times when Heath would have had his dark moments while he was portraying the character, for which he did seek medical attention & as we all know Heath Ledger died of an accidental drug overdose .
Unfortunate to lose such brilliance at the age of 28 but I would like to sum it up by saying Heath ledger died a Legend at 28 and he will be remembered for ages to come & He did achieve Perfection!
