Batman, BAM, and Sun

Wed Movie

Talk about a dynamic duo. Director Christopher Nolan (Memento) and screenwriter David S. Goyer (Dark City) jolt the necrotic Bat-franchise back to life today in Batman Begins. As the batty man and his dadlike valet, American Psycho's Christian Bale and Michael Caine duo well, too. The key: a knotty, logical plot that takes comics seriously. (See review) TIM APPELO
