the dark night

Great movie.

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…  🙂
