There is much information in this 72-minute essay, Unfortunately much of it is not historically accurate. In broad strokes it's okay, but the details are fudged some. But the real problem is that it doesn't deliver on its title. I'd hoped to hear about how the Nolan trilogy took current events and changes in society that we faced post 9/11and fundamentally changed the character. The essay doesn't do that even though it's a rich mine to prospect. In fact, Nolan's movies are almost talked about as an afterthought and not a single mention of the hubbub that came out of The Dark Knight when t is suggested that there is an appropriate time to invade the public's privacy when serving the greater good. Should have been better, and a cursory reading of Michael Uslan's book- The Boy Who Loved Batman would have saved the writer from making a series of factual errors.
