Heath Ledger is so going to win a posthumous Oscar for his performance as the Joker!
Went to see "The Dark Knight" tonight at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood and LOVED it. All two hours and forty minutes of it.
Its contemplation of the theory that societies get exactly the hero they deserve (and need) is fascinating.
And I particularly enjoyed the one-line cameo appearance by Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy. I wonder what percent of the audience recognizes a real-life U.S. Senator amongst the Gotham City socialites?
