That’s the best word I’ve heard to describe The Dark Knight. It’s a dark, epic, torturous film, with an excellent ensemble cast of fine actors. You can see all their names on the poster, right above the title of the film.

It’s #16 in my Top 100. (I’ve added three other films I’ve seen in the past two years.) I’ve never seen another film like The Dark Knight.

I could make a comparison to the sweeping scope of L.A. Confidential or the unpredictable horror of Seven, but this film stands on its own.
