A FILM BY JOESEPH NASTO
BORN LAUGHING-Fans of Heath Ledgers awe-inspiring portrayl of
The Joker in Christopher Nolan's, Batman-The Dark Knight take note...This amazing Fan Film by Joeseph Nasto, Clearvision Pictures,
and Be More Films, is the perfect chaser for Nolan's masterpiece. The film is meant to document the early crimes of The Joker
prior to his appearance in The Dark Knight. Graphic and disturbing, Born Laughing gives you a little sample of what The Dark
Knight might have been like with an R-rating. Josh Davidson, who portrays The Joker in the film, is creepy, menacing,
and clearly disturbed, coming as close to Ledgers portrayl as you're gonna get. The film opens by dumping the viewer
directly into the bloody lap of an ugly crime scene in the making. A bound and gagged girl is tied to a chair
and trembling with fear. It seems that she is the unfortunate sole survivor of an earlier bombing attempt by The Joker
that claimed the life of her parents.
Knowing this, The Joker comes to finish the job, but not before having a little fun first.
What makes this film so great is simple..Director Joseph Nasto and crew managed to capture just enough
of the spark that made The Dark Knight so great, and managed to cram it into a seven minute Fan Film just as entertaining
as a full length feature. Davidson's performance is so brilliant I could swear I was watching Heath Ledger in some unused
footage from The Dark Knight. He's that good folks..An amazing feat indeed, considering Born Laughing was made based
on the very first teaser for Nolan's film, along with some brief footage of Ledger in action.
While Heath Ledger may be dearly departed, his spirit will certainly live on in the heart and minds of creators
everywhere. Born Laughing is both a true fan masterpiece, and a fitting tribute to a man who left this Earth way
