Whilst it faced near-on impossible odds, and didn't live up to the heavenly heights of 'The Dark Knight' (for me this is Nolan's Pièce de résistance), Christopher Nolan, does weave his visionary masterclass of filmmaking and storytelling to bring his near perfect Batman trilogy to an epically satisfying and engrossing conclusion - with this unpredictable, twisting and brooding biblical brute of a touching drama-spectacle. It's also solidly acted throughout from its ensemble.
At times frustrating in its randomness, but at heart a beautiful and haunting human drama. Performances, expect Oscars.
Thinking back over the 99 films I've seen at the cinema so far this year, I don't think there's been a more phenomenally acted performance than, Joaquin Phoenix as Freddie Quell.
