    Batman Begins

    ★★★★

    “And why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.”

    So here we are. Days away from The Batman, one of the few films that only seems to get better the more people discuss it. Likewise, director Matt Reeves' filmmaking career feels the same way, improving upon each movie in his filmography as time goes on.

    “A time to remember”

    Other than the lack of violence and character development throughout most of 1917, it is truly a masterpiece. Like many war films I’ve seen, we don’t get much background for the central protagonists. Yet somehow, I still found myself concerned for them here. Most of that has to do with the “one shot” editing/ cinematography work helmed by Lee Smith and Roger Deakins, respectively. I felt like I was apart of the war itself, especially this…
