Christopher Nolan

The most awaited film of the year comes with a bang.Christopher Nolan has provided the perfect stuff what everyone expects in a action movie and has also delivered the artistic flavor which the Batman franchise was devoid for many years.

Christopher Nolan potrays his characters in an intelligent manner,every character is handled well without any overdose of anything,Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne(Batman) did a very remarkable job which was expected, Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent is good and his character has a U turn in the end, Maggie Gyllenhaal as Rachel Dawes was acceptable,she did a descent job and Christopher Nolan did the right thing by limiting the emotional feeling between Bruce Wayne and Rachel Dawes.Gary Oldman as Lieutenant James Gordon,Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox have been projected well.

The above mentioned characters are overshadowed by the character ‘The Joker’ played by Heath Ledger.The perfect characterization for ‘The Joker’ … ‘Christopher Nolan’ take a bow for portraying the character of ‘The Joker’ in an impeccable way.The character of ‘The Joker’ is not filled with evil, it is filled with cruel Vengeance and the vengeance is something strange as there are no words to defne it.When i was watching the film i was just asking more of the ‘The Joker’ because the character of ‘The Joker’ takes you into the true darkness of humans mind without really talking about the evil behind it.

Heath Ledger as ‘The Joker’ is unbelievable.Heath Ledger steals the entire show of ‘The Dark Knight’.A character becomes unforgettable only when there is an unforgettable performance supporting it and Heath Ledger has given his best and last performance with ‘The Joker’.I felt that he surpassed Jack Nicholson.Every scene and every frame is just a delight to watch.Film critics who are very cynical about performances will be made dissapointed by Heath Ledger.

The stunts are wonderful and the technical quality is amazing.As we know Batman is not a Superhero but we feel that we are watching a Superhero film.The dialogues in the film gives the idea of nature of ‘Batman’ and ‘The Joker’.The chasing scenes,the bomb blasts are wonderful.The tricks used by the main characters are very good and has been neatly executed.

Christopher Nolan needs to be applauded for the characters he created in ‘The Dark Knight’.

Christopher Nolan did not make a film based on a Comic Book but he has done much more than that and he has taken the Batman franchise to another level which is very difficult for others to reach.

‘The Joker’ character which is filled with(inspired with) German Expressionism and Christopher Nolan has shown us the different version of German Expressionism,which i would like to call as the Neo-German Expressionism.
