The Dark Knight ★★★★½

One of those incredibly rare cases where one actor’s performance transcends the film itself. I only watched this movie once like five years ago, yet I still recalled almost every line of Ledger’s dialogue. That really says something about the impact that one man had on the film.

If you have any doubts about Ledger’s performance defining this movie, take a look at the poster in the top right corner. No Dark Knight to be found.

I can’t help but dream about what the third installment could have been if Ledger were in it.
