Ten Years Since ‘The Dark Knight’

It’s been ten years since the release of The Dark Knight. Matt Patches writes about the film over at Polygon:

The Dark Knight is elegantly excessive, a confluence of Nolan’s film-tech obsessions, philosophical puzzles, and wealth of popcorn movie knowledge. Everything that can be explored — architecture, performance, film chemistry, noir tropes, screenwriting “rules,” practical special effects, Ethics 101, action geography, orchestral sound, the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale, pragmatic costuming, the spectrum of humor, truck mechanics — is explored.

The lead-up to this movie, my massive expectations, and then finally seeing it and it being as good as I wanted, was maybe the most fulfilling moviegoing experience of my life. It remains one of my favorite movies to this day.
