Movie Metaphysics: The Dark Knight

A new year ( a few months back, I know), a new month, a new season, and a new category. Hopefully a new series, but I'm bad at series writing (something I'm trying to improve on). Movie Metaphysics -- a series looking at the spirituality in film.

I probably won't spend much time looking at explicitly Christian films, since the spirituality there is apparent. I'll look at mainstream film, to see the religion "ghosts" (as the folks at GetReligion put it). I also won't just be saying "good movie, bad movie" (I'll do that kind of thing at my reviews blog); this is going to be more like "What does this movie say, spiritually?" "What is the worldview in this movie?" -- that kind of thing. Sometime soon I'll be republishing my review of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie, because there's a very important "ghost" there that really gives the movie a different metaphysical slant than the books had.

But today, I'm going to look at The Dark Knight. more...
