Batty

Posted by on June 28 at 10:57 AM

Batman Begins is not a movie but an event, and only an event can be cinema. Cinema is an event. Cinema is an intoxicating concentration of all creative possibilities (musical, theatrical, poetical, visual). Cinema is an eruption. Cinema is the highest art form. Next is jazz. But we have not heard a great jazz album since 1969. Today cinema persists. Batman Begins is pure cinema.
