Back from The Dark Knight

Got a little emotional at The Dark Knight. As in "wondering if I was going to cry at times" emotional.

It's also an emotional wringer. Much of this film is tough to watch.

And it's a film willing and able to go to pretty epic places, story-wise. This is not a "superhero punches supervillain until supervillain stops moving" story; this is a "superhero and supervillain battling for the hearts and minds of the people of the world" story.

Maybe I'll write more fully later. For now, it's been a long day, and wind down I shall.
