    “They think I am hiding in the shadows. Watching. Waiting to strike. I am the shadows”

    Reeves never misses and his The Batman conquers what Nolan could not in crafting a detective story akin to the scripture that founded this character. Granted, Reeves can’t quite nail the action and set piece structure found in The Dark Knight but Reeves nails the seedy underbelly of this world and each and every piece of window dressing…

    ”Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?”

    Phoenix is phenomenal. Dark, gritty & fucking crazy Joker is more on the lines of Mean Streets than Taxi Driver but is clearly heavily influenced on the latter. It all looks to be serving a masterclass, but Phillips stumbles in the last hurdle with the film not knowing if it wants to stand alone as its own entity or be enticed and constricted by the lore that surrounds it.
