The Dark Knight Rises

You will, perhaps, note the change of the site subhead.

With that one line, I think Nolan may have chainsawed through the Gordian Knot of the problems masks and capes create for making superhero movies grounded in something like the real world. It’s a level of awesome up there with the elegant explanation for Captain America’s costume in The First Avenger.

Everything else in the 7 minutes is high-level awesome, too. Especially the CIA heavy who looks like Alan Ruck.

    Nolan really does have strong reductionist ability, doesn’t he? Every time he ups the complications so much in his plots that I’m about to say, “Okay, I’m completely lost, I’m giving up on trying to follow this,” he reels me back in with a simpler way to understand what’s going on.
