Re: TDKR Oscar Chances? - Part 2
IMO TDKR had more balls and ambition than any other film from 2012. We can argue the execution all day, but Nolan did some extraordinary, outside the box things with the freedom he was given on a project of this size, and he did so while honoring a pop culture icon and making a great mass entertainment film.
I'll cherish this movie for decades to come, and look forward to sharing the trilogy with my children some day, if I ever have any. The award stuff is all white noise. The true prize is the film(s).
