Er Batman egentlig George Bush?

En liten advarsel til de som ikke har sett Nolans mesterverk "The Dark Night" - her er litt plot spoiler.

Via Foreign Policy:

Forget Bruce Wayne. I think Dubya (Bush min anm) is actually the Caped Crusader. In her excellent review of "The Dark Knight" the latest in the Batman franchise, Slate scribe Dana Stevens writes, "[T]he movie seems to arrive at much the same conclusion about Batman as Americans have about Bush: Thanks to this guy, we're well and thoroughly screwed".



Batman
George Bush
Lives in an enormous mansion attached to a vast secret underground complex Yes Yes
His Arch nemesis is _____ whose goal is to ______. The Joker; "burn down the world" Al Gore; warn the world about global warming
His parents were: Killed by a small-time criminal. Threatened by a small-time dictator.
Commits himself to an aggressive plan to rid the world of evildoers. Yep Check
But his plan subsequently backfires, making him extremely unpopular. Yep Yep
When innocents are killed, as a result of his actions, he: Broods, considers hanging up his cowl Quits playing golf
Builds a massive surveillance network, which upsets his most loyal employees. Yep Yep

The Dark Knight er den beste propagandafilmen jeg noen sinne har sett.
