Default Re: "Joyless" ?

The film could have benefitted from a lighter touch.

It was so damn dark; say what you will about Nolan's films, but he managed to offset some of the dramatic tension through the bickering btw. Bruce and Alfred. The only attempt at humor in the film failed horribly: the "he's hot" line not only fell on its face, but compromised what could have been a great ending.
