Re: am I the only one who DIDN'T think Nicholson nailed joker??
Well, this Joker wasn't an agent of chaos. He was a seasoned mobster waiting for his chance to become boss of the Grissom crew. I say Nicholson was a good choice, especially given his previous work. It's just that his performance as the Joker wasn't as good as, say, McMurphy or Torrance.
Private Joker is silly and he's ignorant, but he's got guts and guts is enough.
