Default Re: Your favourite TDKR scenes that you watch over and over again...

I couldn't say which scene I've come back to watch the most, but there are a few that stick out for special reason. One is the "break up" scene between Alfred and Bruce. I just love that in a huge tent-pole blockbuster like this there is a scene of such quiet intensity, where two characters literally do nothing but talk. It's stuff like that that makes these movies stand apart from regular action flick affair. Another moment that grabbed me during my last viewing of the film was the very small moment when Bruce stands on his own again in the pit. The camera just rests on him through the cages of the prison for a while with no music or anything else going on. A profoundly understated and human moment.

And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
