There’s been much buzz surrounding the film Black Swan lately, but I’m not sure if these posters have garnered much attention. The graphic design is brilliant. They have the feel of vintage movie posters, which is fitting given that Black Swan references the ballet tradition and the age-old myth of an artist suffering for his or her craft.

Talking about old movies, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and 8 1/2 by Fellini are my favourites. I confess to a weakness for films starring Audrey Hepburn. She’s just so luminous. I also loved Anouk Aimee in 8 1/2. She commands such presence as Guido’s long-suffering wife Luisa.
