[Movies] Christopher Nolan Says The Dark Knight Rises is an Epic War Film
Posted by Larry Csonka on 06.05.2012



- Christopher Nolan recently spoke with Empire about The Dark Knight Rises. Here is what Nolan had to say about the film…

"I think this is the biggest one I've done. The biggest one anyone's done since the silent era, in technical terms. It's all about historical epics in conception. It's a war film. It's a revolutionary epic. It's looking back to the grand-scale epics of the past, really, and for me that goes as far back as silent films.

I've been watching a lot of silent films with my kids on Blu-Ray. We've shot over a third of the movie on the IMAX format, and that naturally puts you more in the mode of staging very large events for the camera. It's my attempt to get as close to making a Fritz Lang film as I could. It's also more in the mould of Doctor Zhivago, or A Tale Of Two Cities, which is a historical epic with all kinds of great storytelling taking place during the French Revolution. There's an attempt to visualize certain things in this film on this large scale that are troubling and genuinely to the idea of an American city. Or, to put it another way: revolutions and the destabilizing of society have happened everywhere in the world, so why not here?"
