Agreed. Sometimes I think the film can barely sustain itself. There is this introspective story about this man painted in an enormous canvas. Sometimes I think that the IMAX time restriction was an issue, and the fact that the original screenplay from Jonah was very long adds to this particular problem. Despite that, the end product is astounding. The movie could have invested a lot of time in different areas. But the fact that Nolan was able to successfully focus on Bruce's character and to use this enormous world and situations to do so is certainly remarkable.
