Movie Review - The Dark Knight

In the crowded men's room after the showing, one fellow wailed his plaint: "Just what the hell was that?" Southern Man couldn't have said it better. The Dark Knight is a overly loud, overly long, incoherent mess held together by the utter insanity that is Heath Ledger's brilliant characterization of The Joker and little else. You'll see it, you'll respect it for the cinematic tour de force that it is, and you'll buy the DVD when it comes out, but you won't really like it and you will never really understand it. Unless you are of course a Batman fanboy (or fangirl, or whatever) in which you will either love it or hate it with all of your heart.
