The Dark Knight (2008)

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

“Some men just want to watch the world burn.”

— Al­fred (Michael Caine) of­fers in­sight into the mo­ti­va­tions of The Joker.

With its epic scale and grand por­trayal of good vs. evil, this was the best of all the Bat­man movies so far, with Heath Ledger’s mys­te­ri­ous Joker of­fer­ing the kind of an­ar­chic vil­lainy that can’t be ex­plained. The movie ends with the death of the crazed, hor­ri­bly scarred Har­vey Dent (Aaron Eckart), a tragedy for which Bat­man takes re­spon­si­bil­ity, ren­der­ing him a true out­law and set­ting up the fran­chise for a wrap-up in­volv­ing an un­stop­pable killer known as Bane (Tom Hardy) and a rein­vented Cat­woman (Anne Hath­away).
