Great film, every moment is interesting. I was pleasantly surprised as I was expecting a film too artistic and abstract to digest, but this film manages to cover the dark storyline without losing interest.

Joaquin is spectacular, so many scenes go by where he draws out such an emotional response, without having to say any words.

While set in Gotham of the DC universe, this truly is a psychological drama, and no capes and spandex are to be seen. I really like how they have done this, as there is no doubt we will see plenty of hero vs. villain films with epic fight scenes, I appreciate being able to get to know the characters inside the DC universe without distraction from the seriousness of their story.
