yes Gods are crazy

The Dark Knight is an awesome movie, almost real. Almost! The only shortcoming, the one that forces the ‘almost‘, is this: if it were real life, the joker would’ve got everything and the Knights would’ve ended-up heart-broken. I know, I belong to the half-empty school of thought. A sound school of thought, I must defend myself- emptiness seems to be the most abundant thing in the universe, the only thing I conclude that I can count on. I can’t understand my conclusion though, it is proving to be a very hard task to manage.

On an arguably related note, is it of any consolation to know that the much-wanted prize, that one was forbidden to fight for, was never a prize? Should one feel relieved, for being spared of the Albatross situation, or should one give-in to the frustration at the futility of it all? Which is worse: to find out that one is fallible, or to find out that every one is?

  1. hahha.. something has been bugging me after I watched The Dark Knight, and couldn’t pinpoint what it was. It seemed so perfect but here’s the bug, as you pointed out.
    But I must admit, the movie was fell-good only in that aspect, otherwise it was a gem of a superhero movie.

  2. True, the movie was awesome. Even my crib, on a second thought, is only half-valid. Harvey Dent dies a broken man and Bruce Wayne is only saved, from being heart-broken, by Alfred. The Joker’s success would’ve been complete if not for the passengers on the ferries, but he did succeed in what he wanted. May be the feel-good factor is imagined by most of us because we don’t want to think about the truth.

  3. Will watch the movie…
    On the albatross thing: The poem features prominently in the plot of Douglas Adams’s novel Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.
    am I surprised?
