The Dark Knight


The night before heading out to see The Dark Knight Rises, we sat down and watched THE DARK KNIGHT to make sure we had the middle part of the Nolan/Bale Batman trilogy top of mind. It's an amazing film. In this second viewing, I was really struck with the power and genius of Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker. At the time, I think I felt his posthumous Oscar was just that, a post tragic death award for a great body of work at a young age. In this second viewing, his work here really stands out. He IS probably the most genuinely evil movie villain since Hannibal Lecter and certainly the best comic book film villain ever. As Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) joins Gordon (Gary Oldman) and Batman to fight evil in Gotham, the Joker plots to turn Dent into a lesser man. Christopher Nolan is firing on all cylinders here, with great performances, strong writing, fantastic action scenes and the perfect humorous moments. Its a dark and powerful film and until its sequel in 2012, certainly the greatest comic book film ever made. One for the ages. A+
