Bat to the Future

I just read an essay on how The Dark Knight Rises is really about Christopher Nolan’s reluctance to make The Dark Knight Rises. If you’re into gross over-analysis of comic book movies and managed to get through my batessays back when TDKR came out last year then you’ll probably get a kick out of it. The author manages to articulate a lot of things that were swimming around my head but never got pinned down, and its reading of the final moments of the movie – Nolan passing the burden of shepherding the Caped Crusader through his next incarnation on to another director while freeing himself from the restrictive shackles of his self-built prison – actually makes me feel a little more positive about the film than I did before.

So that’s something. You can read it here.
