It also feels like the movie he cared the least about, as TDKR contains some of his most amateur work. I can't imagine that he regressed in his ability, so I can only chalk it up to effort/care.
In some ways it's his best movie, in other ways it's his worst. But for me, those high highs make it worthwhile, despite all its faults, and it's why I'm so enamoured with the film and still talking about it here today.
I don't really see it that that way, but I suppose there's no way we can truly know. It's hard for me to reconcile a film being overly ambitious (which TDKR was, for better or worse), with him not caring/trying. But for what it's worth,
That doesn't look like a guy who is disinterested in his own film to me. Talk about micromanaging
