From a purely cinematic standpoint, director/co-writer Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” is a genuine masterpiece. Actually, it’s a triumph. Surpassing the extraordinary hype and expectations surrounding the conclusion to his epic trilogy seemed impossible, and yet somehow Nolan achieved just that. The fact that I’m even debating whether or not “Rises” surpasses its perfect predecessor speaks volumes. Without giving anything away — without telling you if it’s tragic or happy or bitter or sweet –let me just say that the final few minutes of “Rises” represent one of the most intensely satisfying movie moments of my life.
