Went to the movies…

…today. And saw The Dark Knight. Brilliant. Loved it. Harrowing, but superb.

And Heath Ledger was outstanding, and I am not just saying that because he died so young, or because he’s from my home town. He deserves every bit of the praise he will get for this performance. Especially since acting through a mask of make-up must be difficult.

Yet why, oh why, does that seem to make his unnecessary death seem even more poignant?

Vale, Heath. I hope, somewhere deep inside, you knew you had turned in a performance people would remember for a long, long time.
