Ambrosia’s Take 2

JOKER’S WILD! The rumors are true my friends. Heath Ledger (may this talented giant rest in peace) has done the ultimate villain justice with his magnificent portrayal of him. He brought the criminally insane paranoid schitzophrenic that we love to hate and love, to life. Now I completely understand the Oscar buzz surrounding Heath Ledger’s performance and if he does win for best actor, it will be a well deserved posthumous honor as opposed to a pity gift. Now, this is not to take away from the great performance by Christian Bale. He is the best actor to ever grace the suit in my estimation. I was waiting for an actor like him to make the Batman believable with all his complexities wrapped up in a mysterious dark veil.

Every actor, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhall all gave great performances in this tremendous and best film in the Batman series ever made. I don’t want to give away too much but you will be blown away literally by the twists and turns. This is a must see. In a couple of weeks when most have experienced “The Dark Knight”, I will tackle some of the human issues raised. Enjoy!!!
