Re: Steven Spielberg calls the Nolan Batman movies beautiful art films
I remember Tim Burton on Nolan's take (I think around the times of Batman Begins). I would never be to find those links again (if they still exists), but I remember saying that he had liked it a lot and that there was no way they would have let him go that far with comic accuracy or trilogy-planning back in 1989.
Don't worry, voter. Your bribe is in the mail as we speak.
