If you haven't heard the news there was quite a tragedy that took place today at a Colorado premier of the The Dark Knight Rises. I've been a fan of this latest trilogy of films by director Christopher Nolan primarily because of how wrenching the portrayal of the Batman has been throughout each film. Christopher Nolan's Batman is as real and conflicting a character as there has ever been in the entire franchise. I almost bowed out of going to see the premiere in my city tonight but then I started thinking.... Through out the last couple of films and what i presume will continue as the theme in this last installment, there has been a pretty relevant topic. Fear. How people use fear to control others and how much we as people are controlled by it. The latest trilogy examines it from both sides and from multiple perspectives. What I basically decided is what I believe is in the spirit of the films and a tribute to the victims of yet another display of human frailty. I'm seeing this movie tonight.
