I dont even know where to start. This movie is longer than most of my lectures but I try to pay attention to every little detail. The Dark Knight is beautifully crafted and though some subplots seem unnecessary at first, they are character builders for the many different personas in the movie.
The Dark Knight (its so fierce it deserves to be italicized) is directed by Christopher Nolan, who directed Memento (which i LOVE). The movie has a dark outlook into it. Its not about being a superhero and saving the day, its about the complexities of human nature, the shades of grey.
While I drool over hot hot Christian Bale as Batman, but really, this movie is about Joker. Theres something very unsettling in the way Heath Ledger keeps licking his scar. The way he moves and looks and sets his hair, theres definite evil without having to speak a word. I guess this was entirely different from Jack Nicholson’s portrayal, which looked more like a mob boss playing with his victims before he shoots them in the face. Heath Ledger’s portrayals were, diabolical, his eyes empty and just plain psychotic.
You dont know what triggers a psycho, which makes it a lot more scarier.
Which, brings us to the point that Heath Ledger will be greatly missed.
This is, straight out the park dope: 5.0 out of 5.0.
