As I've said before, I love "The Dark Knight." And I'm voting with my heart, that the Batman flick is THE BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR, not "so far," but OF THE YEAR!
So I was happy that the Austin Film Critics Association named "The Dark Knight" the best film of 2008, and not "Slumdog Millionaire."
I have nothing against "Slumdog" but I think too much hype can destroy its chances for the Oscars. Meanwhile, "The Dark Knight" is being overlooked for its comic book nature. But folks, strip all the latex costumes and comic book mythos off of the film and you'll get, an art-house movie about the eternal battle between good and evil!
PLUS, "The Dark Knight" is one of the few films this year that gets better with multiple viewings! One of them is "Wall-E" and the other? "Milk!"
AND, we are in synch with the rest of the winners! Sean Penn for best actor, Anne Hathaway ("Rachel Getting Married") for best actress, Christopher Nolan for best director and adapted screenplay with his brother Jonathan, PLUS, the Austin film critics ALSO love Taraji P. Henson from "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
