I have to agree with the post below that Heath Ledger’s portrait of the joker is chilling. There are time’s throughout the movie where I find him horrifying and other times I wonder why the heck i’m laughing, IE) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfmkRi_tr9c) for instance. I think that after learning about Ledger’s tragic death and the fact that he literally transformed himself into The Joker both on and off the screen shows the commitment that (some) actors give to a character in order to ensure that the audience is happy with the results. This is something we can see in Heath’s performance. In my opinion, it is one of the greatest acting performances ever portrayed. I may not know how the Joker is in the comic books but I do know that I was sold on his portrayal. I want to ask the Batman comic book lovers how they felt about Heath’s performance of the Joker?
