With respect to my friends Keith Uhlich and Jurgen Fauth I ask again, what movie were you watching?
This truly is an awe-inspiring flick, with tremendous depth and executed with great care. And it’s got a dude in a cape driving a crazy-ass mono-pod motorcycle!
I disagree, though, with those who read this as a defense of the Bush administration. I read it as an examination of the Bush administration, asking us to define the lines. Torture a prisoner? There are consequences. Wiretap? There are consequences. Is there a difference between Two-Face and Batman (e.g. Al Qaeda’s tactics and the US’s tactics?) Yes, of course there are – and it is all up there for review.
And the music is great.
I can’t wait to watch this for a third time.
