Overthinking It presents “The Overview,” an alternative commentary where writers from the site watch and discuss their favorite movies in real time.
In this edition, we tackle the superhero masterpiece, The Dark Knight. 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.
You’ll need your own copy of The Dark Knight in any format, and you’ll need to download the file so that you can play both at the same time.
Download the commentaries listeners have called call “So good, I don’t even need the movie to enjoy them.” (Don’t get us wrong, we recommend you play the movie too. But it was awfully nice of them to say.)
