Furthermore, I think that plays into why I like TDKR so much. It succeeds for these two reasons:
The incredible emotional impact of all of the characters' various journeys from BB through TDKR.
The extremely clever and subtextually dense infusion of Knightfall, No Man's Land, and A Tale of Two Cities.
For me, those two aspects of the movie provide for an incredible amount of emotional and intellectual insight and entertainment and really make any remaining plotholes seem trivial and unimportant to the overall tapestry of the film.
It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
