Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

well, I agree with that.

But anarchy is still not tyrannical. It's simply bad word choice

The film can have whatever themes it's all about execution, and having the theme evolve naturally from the story... or have them work together in concert.

That's not what has happened here. Nolan constructed a complex narrative, but the story underneath it all is paper thin. And the themes of economy were not well-realized. If he really wanted to tackle the inequality issue, he would have had Bruce Wayne be the villain, and would have had people rise up against people like him. Imagine that. Bruce Wayne is the villain and the hero. But, he took the easy was, tip-toeing on these themes rather than confronting them.

See, the problem is that you are using your cards to show me what cards you have, and if you can't see that this is viciously circular, then there is no point in continuing
