“Dark Knight”: Is It Republican Propaganda?

According to a Wall Street Journal commentary, “The Dark Knight Rises” is a movie that delights Republicans, fat-cat elitists, capitalists and libertarians. It shows “the depravity inherent in radical movements.” But isn’t crony capitalism of the Wall Street variety the most radical — i.e. destructive — force in today’s America? That perspective doesn’t seem to have occurred to the Journal’s writer when thinking about a flick directed by Christopher Nolan (pictured) and starring Tom Hardy as Bain I Mean Bane.
