Went and watched Batman Begins today, which was directed by Christopher Nolan, who made one of my all time faves, Memento. It was quite watchable, but it is really disappointing to see such a talented director wasting his time with something so banal as a Batman movie. Sure, he did an OK job of it, but couldn't he do something original? It seems all too often the reward for filmmakers who make a great breakthrough is that they get to do "big" movies. But bigger ain't often better.
I hope CN can get back to his roots soon. (And please don't follow in his footsteps Shane Carruth...)
