Picks and Pans Review: Now on DVD and Blu-Ray

THE DARK KNIGHT There's nothing comic-book about Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker, The Dark Knight's twisted villain. Therein lies the genius behind the late actor's phenomenal final turn, worth rediscovering on DVD. His monster in the latest Batman tale is pure, unleashed evil at its most anarchic. But he's also a man in psychic torment, and it's the suicidal hurt beneath the hammy hubris that makes Ledger's Joker so haunting.
