Critic Review - New York Post

A sublime brain-twister of a movie that plays out so intricately on so many levels simultaneously that a bathroom break comes at your own peril.

How about that, a New Yorker (and top critic at that) gave a Nolan film a good review!

Wow! Oh my goodness! It can't be true!

A TOP NY-critic not only gave this a GOOD review, but a 4/4 (perfect) review!
Not only that but called it the best movie of far.
Not only THAT, but called it a masterpiece of the first order.
Someone please pinch me...I must be dreaming...!

if i recall the other posts, one of the new york commenters predicted this paper would give a positive review. so congrats to that guy.

from what i remember this is one of the only normal New York publications that people read. the other ones are just drivel.

He is probably going to get bullied at the next New York critic meeting!

Wow. He said that it surpasses the Matrix and Blade Runner. Wow. You CAN'T give higher praise than that.

A bathroom break is perilous, eh? Well, it's a good thing I have a strong bladder. Managed to sit through The Return of The King and King Kong without going to the loo. This will be a peice of cake! :)

This review is confirmation that Lou isn't another mentally challenged New York critic.

lol not every1 from NY has bad taste...its just been an odd coincidence that most negative reviews on nolan films happen to be from critics writing for a ny paper or a NY'er and i'm a major chris nolan fan and The Dark Knight has dethroned The first Matrix as my all time Favorite Movie.
