The Ubiquitous Dark Knight

I finally saw The Dark Knight Rises and while, if you think about it too much you will find things to criticize, there is no getting around that -- and I saw it at an Imax -- it is an incredibly gripping and profoundly unsettling movie.

What's amazing, though, is how the movie has touched a nerve in so many different and unrelated areas of American life

There's the political angle:

The Politics of “The Dark Knight Rises”

No, 'The Dark Knight Rises' Isn't a Right-Wing Opus

The finance angle:

Bane's Plan to Bankrupt Batman Doesn't Make Any Sense

The fashion angle:

The Super-villain's Dress-Code

Conspiracy Theories: The Dark Knight Rises x Ermenegildo Zegna

And, last but not least, the Anne Hathaway angle:

The Awesome Anne Hathaway

Be forewarned:  almost all of these links contain plot spoilers.  You may want to see the movie first and then look up the links.
