Didn't expect to love this as much as I did, I want to see it again already which to me is a measure of a great film. I did expect Joaquin Phoenix to play the Joker excellently and I wasn't disappointed. I do think you have to have knowledge of the character and understand what the Joker is supposed to be about to get this movie. Chaos, check. Insanity, check. Violence, check. Humour, check! And the dancing on the steps scene as he emerges as Joker for the first time...wonderful!
