The Dark Knight

Rated PG-13 150 minutes 2008

It would be a mistake to call The Dark Knight only a super-hero movie since it�s also probably the best crime drama of the new millennium. The sense of realism evoked by director Christopher Nolan is staggering despite the fact that this is a story is about a dude who dresses up as a bat. Much of this is due to the spectacular city vistas courtesy of IMAX cameras, very limited CGI work (the antithesis of comic-book moviemaking), and the focus placed on characters above action. Heath Ledger�s Joker serves as an anarchic foil to Christian Bale�s law-enforcing Batman, two sides of the same coin � a philosophical notion personified in the role of white knight DA Harvey Dent who becomes the homicidal Two-Face (Aaron Eckhart) (152 min.).
