Quote from: brockly on April 07, 2009, 08:41:12 PMwasnt that the point of ledger's joker? to be detached from human emotions? to not have heart? nicholson's joker started off as your average criminal and then had the transformation. heath's joker is a mystery, and that makes him a much more terrifying villian than nicholson's joker. i dont see the point in bringing mimicry into the conversation, but in ledger's defence take the first scene where he's describing how he got the scares and how impassioned he gets, or in his final scene where neither of the boats detonate and you see true dissapointment on his face. if a good mimicry job can nail those moments then i'm sure it's possible to get to the heart of nicholson's performance as well. what makes ledger's performance number 1 for me is simply the fact that it had the strongest impact on me which no doubt has a lot to do with the fact that, as stefen said, ledger is virtually unrecognisable in the role.
