Last night I attended “An Evening with Christopher Nolan” at the Walter Reade Theater.

It was amazing to see a director I admire so much in the flesh. This was almost as great as when I got to meet Joe Wright, my favorite director. Nolan is pretty high on my list, right below Tarantino. We saw lots of clips from Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and with each clip I fell more and more in love with Nolan’s direction. I just really love Nolan’s movies, guys! He seems like a very shy and quiet guy, but very thoughtful and humble considering how much of a critical and commercial success he is.

Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families.

Tweet Review: The Dark Knight Rises, a fitting end to a magnificent trilogy
Batman has always been my favorite comic book hero, so I’ve had my tickets to see the last in Nolan’s Batman trilogy for weeks. There’s just something about an ordinary man rising up and fighting for those who can’t. I always loved Batman’s grounded center and his unyielding belief in good. What I have loved about Nolan’s take on the comic is just how much he emphasizes this. Batman is as much of a hero as he is just a man, albeit a rather rich one with unlimited means. Nonetheless, I was super sad to see this series come to an end, and it felt very much like Nolan himself was saying goodbye, providing his fans with enough action, twists and the occasional fandom wink to appease us all.

The audience knows the truth: the world is simple. It’s miserable, solid all the way through. But if you could fool them, even for a second, then you can make them wonder, and then you… then you got to see something really special.
