I psyched myself up so much about The Dark Knight, that I started watching clips on YouTube (some of them illicit). Thoughts:
+ Gary Oldman's understated performance as Lt Gordon is perfect.
+ I've always thought of Alfred as a proper English butler, but Michael Caine's accent is more common.
+ This interview with Christopher Nolan talks about a conscious choice to show more of Batman and his fighting style.
+ In this interview, Heath Ledger seems very unsettled, fidgety. Foreshadowing?
