Re Frank Miller completely losing the plot: How do we know he ever had it. From what I see of the Nolan version of Batman, which is apparently a blend of Miller and Insomnia,
I'm afraid your impression is mistaken. Nolan's Batman films encompass a lot of different influences -- Frank Miller's Batman: Year One is only one of them. Nolan's Batman is influenced by everything from Denny O'Neil's Batman: The Man Who Falls to Alan Moore's The Killing Joke to Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's The Long Halloween.
