Default Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 3

So then the paint isn't scratched? You kinda messed up your own analogy...

Anyhow, my point is, different types of movies (like different types of cars) serve different functions. In B89's case, plotting takes a backseat to the other visual, thematic, and character-driven aspects of the film. Sometimes, to really explore and fully flesh out those alternative aspects of a film, plotting HAS to take a backseat as to not distract the viewer from or overpower the rest of the film.
