Talking about Batman Begins (2005)!
On this beginning-ish (oof, that's terrible, we know) episode of Oeuvre Busters, Liam and George discuss 2005’s Batman Begins, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale, Katie Holmes, Cillian Murphy, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, and Gary Oldman. (What a cast!)
Topics discussed: Tax exemptions; orientalism; flirting with fascism; psychological depth, Batman's slightly-pudgy face. Also, military hardware is bad! Topics not discussed? John Keats’ notion of negative capability and how essential the concept is in understanding Keats’ late odes.
