The Horrific Sanity of the Joker

Joker: "The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules.”

Very interesting article by Ikonographer: "Heath Ledger's Joker is the Sanest Man in Gotham"...
"Heath Ledger’s Joker was frightening to me because he was bold enough to really live out the implications of his belief. He lives out what most people in this world are too cowardly to admit: that their rejecting of God as the moral center of the universe leaves them with no ability to declare wrong from right. The result is a world in which people must be freed to pursue their desires to their fullest extent."

Can you tell that I can't wait to see it. Probably a few more weeks away at the earliest.

Ok brother. When you do finally see it, we're going to have a long talk about it. I've been getting beat up for my own theological musing on the movie by fellow well-meaning Christians, and I'm about ready to find some familiar thought to sooth my weary wordsmithing!
