It's confusing to watch and I've seen it four times.
The final film is like an Inception cast reunion. At one point I thought Batman was going to reach for his totem and give the top a whirl to see if he was really in the movie.
It's certainly not a fun romp. The final film is dark and doesn't have the theatrics of the Joker. In a small way... Catwoman is somewhat wasted... but Alfred... Michael Caine is wonderful and he should get an Academy nomination for this one. He is the soul of the Movie. Gary Oldman is a pleasure to watch in anything and more than makes up for the HORRIBLE Tinker Tailor.
I'm going to take a Bat-Nap.
