Re: Batman...

The funny thing about Batman Returns is that I like it for its visual style and the performances and twisted sense of humor at the same time as I find the story mostly a bore. The scenes with Batman and Catwoman are great. It's not Batman the comic any more than The Ten Commandments is the book of Exodus, but that doesn't bother me. Burton's thing is about freaks and how they live being freaks. I agree with him: anyone who thinks being a vigilante in a bat-suit would be nuts on some level. That's why Keaton worked: he was nuts.
