I'm not your stereotypical superhero nerd buff. I have not gone to comic-con and dressed up like one of my favorite superheroes, never religiously counted down the days until the premiere of the next Marvel Epic, or debate which DC superhero can fight crime the best. Yet, when it comes to Batman-- well that's when my fan hood for super heroes comes in question. I love Batman! The caped crusader who has no super power to name, but is instead a normal every day human; aside from the billionaire status, high-priced mansion that couples as a bat cave, and a loyal old gent/butler by his side, named Alfred.
For years I have marveled at the Batman franchise, first Burton's Batman series, then Schumacher's, and of course Nolan's, for which I felt truly took the franchise to new heights in the Dark Knight trilogy depictions. And this is where we find the setting of the beautiful documentary in discussion, called A Fire Rises.
If you appreciate the essence of a director having a clear vision and making it come to life on screen there is no way you could not find this documentary incredibly enlightening and insightful. I recommend all aspiring filmmakers to watch this 76-minute feature documentary that details the incredible creative process that Christopher Nolan took on when he signed on to make Batman Begins (and the two filsm to follow), but more importantly how the he convinced Warner Bros. studio executives to have such a renowned confidence in his vision.
