The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight ★★★★½

Nolan is a genius.
Bale’s performance is fair.
I still miss Ledger. His performance leaves me speechless. What can I say, flawless? Timeless? Inspiring? Legendary? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. To think of the performances he’d be giving now.

-“Yes.”
-“How?”
-“We burned the forrest down.”

The cinematography is quite beautiful. Something I over looked when I first experienced it. The final fight scene between Batman and the Joker is brilliantly done with notable perspective flips, flops, pulls, and pushes. Lastly, the shot of the Joker walking away as he blows up the hospital is truly one of Nolan’s best moments. Just, wow.
