Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 3
Yes, actually. By far.
Everyone gets so concerned about the plastic vinere of the "Playboy Bruce" that they completely overlook the depth and nuance of Keaton's performance. He played the real Bruce.
Not some campy over the top fallacy, but the real, solitary yet inside, psychotic yet innocent Bruce Wayne. And he did it in a way that both made it incredibly believable, as well as inexplicably likeable.
It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
