why so serious?

the joker

the joker

loved the character and performance of heath ledger – best actor in a supporting role – 81st oscar awards. few dialogues from the movie:

Wanna know how I got these scars? My father was….a drinker. And a fiend. And one night he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn’t like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. Turns to me and he says “Why so serious?” Comes at me with the knife,”Why so serious?” He sticks the blade in my mouth. “Lets put a smile on that face!” And….. Why so serious?

You look nervous. Is it the scars? You want to know how I got them? Come here. Hey, look at me. So I had a wife, beautiful; like you. Who tells me, I worry too much. Who tells me, I ought to smile more. Who gambles, and gets in deep with sharks. One day they carve her face. We have no money for surgeries. She can’t take it! I just want to see her smile again. I just want her to know that I don’t care about the scars. So I stick a razor in my mouth and do this…

Joker: Its simple, we kill the batman.
other person: If its so simple, why havent you done it already?
Joker: If you good at something, never do it for free.

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

it is very unfortunate that he couldn’t witness his joker’s success
