Batman ★★★★★

A dark neo-noir industrial crime film. While it does still have Tim Burton’s trademark whimsical flair to it, this is not the Burton we see today and it is a shame. He really excels in creating a gothic / industrial aesthetic. 

This Batman universe is fantastic, it’s the perfect balance. The movie is dark and grimy but the characters are still comic book characters. Jack Nicholson’s joker is gleefully destructive and the museum scene set too Partyman is one of my favorite scenes in any film ever. 

Love to see it.
