We are pleased to bring you this latest edition of The Overview, our series of alternative commentaries to your favorite movies. You can buy and download the track easily, and when you play it alongside the film, you’ll have the experience of watching a movie with your buddies from the Internet, the Overthinking It writers.
Here at the OTI-dome, we can’t wait for the final installment of the Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batman trilogy. Who cares whether we can understand a single word Bane says? He’s Tom Hardy, he’s badass, and he’s escaping from a plane. So for this Overview, we chose as our subject The Dark Knight, featuring Heath Ledger’s indelible performance as The Joker—a character whose motives and aims are enigmatic: Though you can understand what he says, can we really understand everything he does? (Want to know how he got these scars?)
With forays into film aesthetics, philosophy, game theory, narrative strategy, and the Batmobile, this is an Overview as dense and richly textured as Nolan’s dystopic cityscape. Get yours today!
