Wait’ll They Get A Load Of Me

Joker Jack Nicholson

Day 58: The Joker. I loved this movie SO MUCH. Doing my part to aid in the spread of Batmania in 1989, I think I saw it 3 times in the theater that Summer. Looking back, the gritty realism has morphed into a retro-styled comic-book movie that I think still holds up. Although now I don’t care for the idea of the Joker having a flesh-out backstory, it still works, and was definitely among Jack Nicholson’s greatest performances.
