“I think Chris has an ability to make his movies very topical, and like Bob Kane’s creation of Batman in 1939, which I think was an answer to the uselessness that people felt against the huge tragedy of WWII, I think Chris has returned Batman to that. Also, I’ve done a few big-scale films that carried just a pure entertainment aspect to them – the rollercoaster ride and that was it – which, respectfully, I don’t think they did what Chris has managed to do [with “The Dark Knight Rises”]. This is more than just entertainment, if you choose to see that.”

I wouldn’t love Christian as much as I do if he wasn’t as intelligent as he is.
