I wish Wong Kar Wai had directed this movie. Watching this again you can totally see why the Nolan films are what they are, but I don’t think they took the right lessons away. It isn’t that Batman needs to be “realistic”, the icon status and large overt themes are the best thing that the story and character have to offer, it is just stupid and boring and doesn’t know how to handle the artificiality as anything other than kitsch.
