The Dark Knight of Gotham City begins his war on crime with his first major enemy being the clownishly homicidal Joker.

”Dark, haunting and poetic, Tim Burton’s “Batman” is a magnificent living comic book. From its opening shots, as the camera descends into the grim, teeming streets of Gotham City, the movie fixes you in its gravitational pull. It’s an enveloping, walk-in vision. You enter into it as you would a magical forest in a fairy tale, and the deeper you’re drawn into it, the more frighteningly vivid it becomes.” Hal Hinson – Washington Post
