This interview with Chris Nolan, director of the latest incarnation of the Batman movie franchise, is so supportive of my critique of this pathetic excuse for a crime-fighting hero that I am going to enjoy highlighting it in a ruthless and slow fashion. These movies, in which sadistic sub-human killers are enabled and encouraged and shown compassion by Batman and his vajayjay, are a disgrace and deserve no mercy when being deconstructed. They will get none here, but give me a few days for the next installment.
In the meantime, here’s the link and a quick excerpt;
I think Heath managed to find the exact essence of the threat of the Joker and who he is: He’s being pounded in the face and he’s laughing and loving it. There’s nothing you can do. As he tells Batman, “You have nothing to do with all of your strength.” There’s this sort of impotence of the strong and the armored and the very muscular Batman; he’s very powerful, but there’s no useful way for this power to be exercised in this scene.
Congratulations, Chris Nolan, for admitting to the central, fatal flaw in your pathetic Batman movies: “…there’s this sort of impotence…”
You said it, not me — oh, hold on, I did say it, and I’m going to say it again, just you wait.
