Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight,

Even though a new iteration of Batman is on the way with Ben Affleck suiting up for the "Man Of Steel" sequel, Christopher Nolan's trilogy is still held as the peerless adaptation bringing both sizzle and substance to the big screen with his "The Dark Knight" trilogy. And as such, folks continue to dissect his films.

And among those folks is pop philosopher Slavoj Žižek, who in this clip from the forthcoming "The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology," takes a look at the politics of "The Dark Knight." In particular he points attention to what he believes is the rather conservative message that order can only be maintained in society by perpetuating lies onto the public in the name of the common good. Anyway, while you turn that over in your head, there's also a quick clip from a longer 25-minute conversation between Nolan and Richard Donner, in which they discuss the virtues of cutting to music (or not— Nolan doesn't use temp tracks).

The full talk between those directors can be found on "The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition" which is in stores now. "The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology" opens on November 1st and you check out the poster and trailer for that right here. [Biblioklept/Movieclips]
