OJ Hearts…

28 Jul

…Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

Now I don’t claim to be a film critic, connoisseur or even a regular keen watcher of the medium, but in my book, this is one of the best performances–film or stage–I have ever witnessed. So deeply did the actor disappear into the character that, come to think of it, I wouldn’t even call it a performance. Or the role of a lifetime. It was almost as if he lived his last months being The Joker. And a good half year after his tragic demise, I’m heartbroken at having discovered him only now.

But then again, if you’re all the way up there, the only way out is off the ride. Suddenly, people, I feel like the joke’s on us.

Edited to add: Clearly, I’m not the only fan The Joker has. Check out this clown.
