Re: Other great trilogies and where TDKR fits for you
When i think of trilogies regarding a main character progress during 3 movies , i always thought about Godfather (Michael Corleone) , Star Wars OT (Luke) and Inagaki Samurai's Trilogy (Musashi)...so in that sense i add a fourth one with Dark Knight Trilogy ( Bruce Wayne).
But a trilogy can also be a list of 3 movies where the actions occurs in the same universe , or 3 movies linked thematically. That list would be more vast.
On the genre , Nolan did something unparalleled , in terms quality and coherence.
