Why So Serious?
I saw The Dark Knight today. Like the press everywhere, I was bowled over by Heath Ledger's performance. He was the closest in true accuracy of the comic book's depiction of The Joker. I was truly unsettled whenever he was on screen. I never knew what he was going to do. He was amazing. I found myself thinking back to Jack Nicholson's performance, which I like as well, but let's face it - that was nearly 20 years ago. Times have changed, and this is definitely the definitive Joker for our times.
I found this fan video that intersperses Jack's Joker with Heath's. Unfair, to be sure, but still interesting.
Ps...this is post 999.
