Cinemakers: Christopher Nolan #040 – The Dark Knight (2008)
The Dark Knight changed the game for comic book movies and ushered in a new type of superhero film. But you already knew that. What’s left to say about The Dark Knight? Nothing that hasn’t already been talked about ad nauseam, but that didn’t stop us from running our traps for two hours to effuse praise on the movie, the trilogy, and (of course) Heath Ledger’s performance. While The Dark Knight isn’t perfect and isn’t necessarily Nolan’s best movie — watching all of Nolan’s films in order makes you realize that the guy’s made a ton of really, really good movies… who knew?! — it’s ludicrously fun and well-made.
Did you miss our episode on Batman Begins? Well, correct that mistake by catching it here! Otherwise, we’ll have to let loose a little bit of anarchy into the world, and we wouldn’t want to do that.
