Selina is a rare type of person - and Bruce knows he's found what he's looking for in the end. Happiness.

Selina will also make Bruce hallucinate. She's like a drug. Just like the flower.

I gotta out this here too... One of my faves:

Good GIFS. I like how Bruce does have friends, but he has them isolated. They're personal, one on one relationships. Bruce and Alfred, primarily at home. Gordon and Batman, on the job. Bruce and Fox at the company. Blake whenever he met him around the place. And of course Selina. He interacted with people in their respective section and they all didn't mingle as one.

Alfred got the last laugh by dropping the Rachel bombshell on him. Wayne's bravado goes down real quick after that.

Bruce was coming down from an absolute high of being Batman again and kicking some butt and Alfred was being a party pooper.

They both pretty have had it with each other at that scene and then it culminated in that heartbreaking scene at the manor.

I can't believe I have a complete Batman arc with the same actor and director.

That part is so damn symbolic. Fear finds him again, but this time, as a symbol of hope, hence the bright sky instead of the dark cave.

He said that the same day right ? Not after a while , where is loved one was showing an immense mental fatigue and suicidal thoughts ? Right ? Right ?

You never said a kind word to a loved one ?

Just let it be, it's a joke. We all know that what Alfred did was because he loved his surrogate son to keep him from killing himself. That scene was one of the highlights of the film for me.

Also I love how Jonathan Nolan describe the symbolic connection of Bruce now climbing out of the well without his father. he mentions it in the Journey of Bruce Wayne featurette on TDKR blu-ray.

It's one of the best scenes of the trilogy. Though the extras make it a little ridiculous each time

This. I've always liked that particular moment during Bruce's successful climb.

New interview:

http://metro.co.uk/2012/12/06/christ...-rage-3302696/

Quote:
Christian Bale: Batman is a channelling of Bruce Wayne’s rage


Is Batman a hero or vigilante?

A bit of both. He’s only needed because the system has failed. You want to believe citizens would stand up and fight for justice in that position. Ideally, Batman becomes obsolete and that’s what Bruce Wayne is looking for. But he’s a multifaceted character, which is what I enjoy about this portrayal. The Dark Knight sums him up – this guy has a desire to do good but he also has a great deal of violence, anger and a lust for revenge. So there’s always that question mark: is he going to cross the line?

What’s the difference between Bruce and Batman?

Batman is just an extension of one of Bruce’s characters. Bruce is somebody with multiple personalities. You’ve got the private, lonely, sad, child-like Bruce, who has never moved on from seeing his parents killed. You’ve got the playboy Bruce, who is there just as a performance. And Batman is a sincere channelling of his rage, his sense of injustice and wanting to be useful. So I’ve never seen him as being separate because that’s how you have to understand why somebody would run around in a silly suit like this.

Was it hard for you and Tom Hardy [Bane] to execute your fight scenes in costume?

Yeah. Well, just on a basic level it was tricky. Sometimes Tom couldn’t hear what I was saying and I couldn’t hear what he was saying. We worked out a kind of sign language before we’d go at each other. But these were meant to be far more brutal, raw, visceral fight sequences than we’d seen before, because Bane has arrived when Batman/Bruce Wayne is at a very low point.

Did you feel a good screen chemistry with Michael Caine?

It worked really nicely. Michael did a great job with Alfred. He is Bruce’s surrogate father and butler. It is a weird relationship to navigate. Alfred is the gateway to try to find something likeable about Bruce Wayne, to see the lonely child inside this apparently very successful man.

Batman is motivated by a desire to fight crime. Do you have any similar instincts?

I think it’s a damn shame if we’re in a society where people don’t try to do that kind of thing. While I’ve never truly been tested, I’d be hideously disappointed with myself if I didn’t step up to the plate in situations like that. Clearly, Batman is doing it in a very extreme fashion and he’s suffering for it. He’s hanging on to pain but he’s turning it into something that gives him a sense of purpose. At heart, I think, probably everybody has that desire and would like to answer that question of whether, if push came to shove, they would be able to rise to the occasion.
