I am convinced the role of The Joker killed Heath Ledger.
I just saw "The Dark Knight" with my friend last Saturday. All I can say is, it is one of the best movies I have ever seen.
And I will never watch it again.
Friends and readers, "The Dark Knight" is also one of the most, if not the most, disturbing films I have ever seen. Why is this?
The movie gives us a direct peek into the sin nature. The Joker is a sadistic mass-murderer, and one who revels in it.
Besides the gore (and especially the disgusting gore of even looking at the face of the character "Two-Face"), what disturbed me the most about the movie was that the utter sinfulness of the sin nature cannot be put into words.
I literally lost sleep over this movie. I can't express how intensely disturbing the film was.
Would I recommend my readers to see this movie? That, of course, is up to you. I will not allow my wife to see it. This movie is not for the faint of heart.
The sin nature is so vile that we don't even understand it. The scary thing to me is that we are all Jokers.
Lord, save me from myself.
