Hello everyone and welcome to Some Like It Scott's latest limited series: Nolan Countdown. Each week in the lead up to Christopher Nolan's latest film, Tenet, the two Scotts and countdown special guest, Jay Habib, will be working their way through Christopher Nolan's full filmography in chronological order, starting from his humble beginnings making "budget" films like Following and Memento, all the way to his most recent days making mega-blockbusters like his Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, Interstellar, and Dunkirk. This time, Jay Habib has actually seen these films (quite a few of them, quite a few times actually), but there will be fresh takes, crazy theories, and deep conversations about one of the most interesting auteur filmmakers of this generation all along the way. Join us each week!
On part 4 of the countdown, Scott, Scott, and Jay revisit the first entry in what would eventually become Christopher Nolan's trilogy of Batman films: the 2005 superhero film Batman Begins. Batman Begins at the time was a fresh take on the origin story of Bruce Wayne, Gotham's famous caped crusader, portrayed by Christian Bale, as he goes on a 7-year odyssey to find himself and his calling, 14 years after the double-murder of his parents by a street thug named Joe Cool in a back alley of Gotham. Bruce's odyssey takes him to the far reaches of the mountains of Bhutan in South Asia, where he finds and trains with the mysterious organization called The League of Shadows, only to question and rebel against their plan to destroy Gotham, which has become too corrupt to save by their measure. The remainder of Batman Begins sees Bruce return to his hometown of Gotham and to his butler, Alfred, played by Micheal Caine, and resolves himself to fighting mafia kingpin, Carmine Falcone, played by Tom Wilkinson, using his newly learned tactics and trainings, a brand new vigilante identity, and some sweet new tools, thanks to Wayne Enterprises's R&D division and Morgan Freeman's Lucius Fox. Batman won't be able to take down Falcone, as well as new-on-the-scene fear-mongerer, Scarecrow, played by Cillian Murphy, alone, and will require the help of Alfred; Fox; his childhood friend and love interest, Rachel Dawes, played by Katie Holmes; and Gary Oldman's James Gordon, one of the few incorruptible Gotham City police officers. The countdown trio give their thoughts on how well Nolan's initial take on Batman holds up, the evolving technical aspects of his filmmaking, and whether the performances and the set pieces of Batman Begins continue to improve.
