I was skeptical that the popular raving over Ledger’s Joker had more to do with his untimely subsequent death than with his actual acting. Having this as my expectation – and with the awareness that editing, music, make-up, camera-angle, etc. can help an average actor/actress look far-more-than-average – I must say: Ledger has pulled off a Joker that will be long remembered. It’s intense.
Also, I particularly love the themes in the movie. Good v. Evil. Chaos (personified in the Joker). Chance (personified in Two-Face). Choices. Need v. Want.
This is not a movie you’ll want to wait for the DVD…
I’ve seen in twice and counting… :)
