The scene when the Joker reveals himself to the mob boss ‘Carl Grissom’ then murders him; this scene shows these techniques being used very effectively. The scene starts out with the Joker as a silhouette standing in the doorway of his bosses office, this visual technique reveals to the audience that the Joker (Jack Napier) is following a darker path and does not take orders from anyone.
