An origin story for The Joker.

It's cheesey and cartoonish, but I don't care; it's the Batman I grew up with. Going back to watch this after Nolan's movies, it really becomes clear how this is just one level of campiness above Adam West. Also, what's with Batman killing people left and right? And the city thanking him for it? 1980s morality is f***ed up. And as much as I think Nicholson and Keaton are cool, this has got to be some of the worst casting ever.
