    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A major plot point of this movie is that Gotham is almost entirely below sea level

    A lot of the power of the book is lost without the ability to easily re-read and digest everything being presented. Nonetheless the central premise is even more true now in the hyper-connected, hyper-modern digital age. Even my posting about this on letterboxd is part of the spectacle, the genuine act of sharing a cinematic experience supplanted by what amounts to shouting into a void, at once filled with infinite possibility and empty of real interaction.

    OOhh this was a good one. I wanted to make something like this, but then I realized how much time and effort goes into this.
