So, its meaning and depth is...that it is an 'urban war film'. And the end of a trilogy.

Not exactly Dostoyevsky, is it?

Who was the Oedipal mother-figure who had caused The Joker's disfigurement and formed the center of his plot for vengeance?

I suppose you mean that both Silva and The Joker allowed themselves to get captured. Well, that plot device is as old as the hills. Robin Hood was doing it before motion pictures had been invented.

In any case, TDKR was a rip off of BB. So, if it did rip off TDK, at least Skyfall chose a better film.

I'm sure he was influenced by a lot of things. Not least 50 years of Bond films.

Respectfully, I really don't think so.
