Cool Videos: Breaking down a scene of The Dark Knight
I'm not sure there's any film that inspires more undying fan loyalty than THE DARK KNIGHT, so to be featuring a profound criticism of the film is probably just asking for trouble.
I'm a fan myself, but I'm always curious to hear conflicting opinions and was very interested by this video made by critic Jim Emerson that breaks down a chase scene from the film. In his own words:
“We notice lapses in visual logic whether our brains register them consciously or not. I found this sequence utterly baffling the first time I saw it, and every subsequent time. At last, I now know exactly why.”
Does he have a point? Or is he just a film snob? Watch below and see what you think. See part 2 here if you want more.
