Have you seen the new Batman?

Saw it before I left for Ireland, seriously disturbing and violent but excellent film making. Chicago is the star. I love living in Gotham.
This review snippet from a London paper, I think sums up exactly how fantastic Heath Ledger is as the Joker. Don't know how they can follow with a sequel, but it would be nice to have them all back in my hometown.
"And Ledger? Although the Joker's menace is anonymous, random and impersonal, meaning this is more of a star turn than a performance, he's magnificently creepy and unhinged. His manic zest gives the film its energy. He knocks Jack Nicholson into a cocked purple hat. Even if he doesn't get that posthumous Oscar, this is enough of a tour de force to make us mourn him again."
