Video: Just the Joker

The guys over at The Cussing Channel have compiled a video of all of Heath Ledger's scenes in The Dark Knight Rising.  His scenes are undoubtedly the highlights of the movie, but when you watch it all back to back, it's funny just how overboard Ledger went with his character.  I remember reading claims that Ledger had attempted to sabotage his role. (Source) I didn't really credit the idea until I saw this supercut. 
"Our tribute to one of our favorite movies, and one of the best performances ever put to film: Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight. Ledger is already the best thing about the movie, so we stripped away everything else to give you just the Joker's lines for more than 10 straight minutes. (4:37 might be in the running for the best part of this supercut, but there are many great sequences).

Rules: Just The Joker, just the on-camera dialogue. Now, there are many shots in this film over the Joker's shoulder, with the focus on the character he's talking to... those lines didn't make it... only the clips where the Joker is the focus of the shot (otherwise this becomes a 30-minute affair)."
