While people are head over heel with the Joker and part of it Batman (yes, he was overshadowed by the gay guy from Brokeback Mountain), I empathized more on Harvey Dent than the rest of the characters in The Dark Knight. Yes, Joker provided us with an excellent show, a deep argument and philosophical believe behind his 'smile' and staying strong with it. And of course, Batman showed the selfless act and incorruptible sense of justice in doing the 'right thing'. People tend to overlook the byproduct of the collision of these two 'Goliath'; the torment of Harvey Dent. He's the living testimony of Joker's argument and Batman have the Gotham people to stand by his principals. But what makes it more tragic is that the choices made by Harvey were relevant and somewhat a similar path many would take under that circumstances. It was totally human, and that's what i can understand from him (and it scares me a bit). Circumstances, chance, experience will shape us and bring out the best or the worst of us.. that's why he is easy for us (or is it only me?) to relate to and wonder; "would i fall in the same path if i were to be in his shoe, pushed to that extend and given a strong reasoning with it to retaliate.. would i fail in the same way?". To say that he is evil would be too shallow and an overstatement, and to call him good would be idealistically wrong but principally acceptable for he seeks justice for everyone. Justice that's down to its' core and simplistic form, chance 50-50. So now friends.. what is FAIR?? what is JUSTICE?? and what does it take to be human and humane enough idealistically and principally?
