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

What Nolan does is that he takes the essence of something, then writes the story and script based on that, and then during the making adds another layer of references.

It's like writing a renarration of something you saw or read ten years ago. The essential stuff you can remember and extrapolate on, but other detail is not important to the story you want to tell.

I like that approach for remakes and parodies very much.
