    Ledger made Nicholson's Joker look like a clown. Sir Jack didn't bother to find a backstory. Ledger, or the script, found one that came out as many, and Ledger played him like the psychotic is is/was.

    All opinion of course. Hell, maybe ot was the director that made the most recent Joker the best--so far. My guess is that the worked together on it.
