I like some of the things Nolan brings to the table. Do I like it for Batman? Hell no. It seems like an indie director trying to be big and hollywood. The only thing more annoying than that is a big hollywood director trying to act all hip, connected with the times, and indie. Those are two different fields of talent. Nolan doesn't seem like a very good visualist to me. His cityscapes are boring, and I don't like a lot of his shot setups. He knows how to communicate with actors VERY well. I applaud him for being an actors director, but to me, he lacks in the visual department. Yeah you can have a team of experts flesh out a decent vision, but if it's not all coming from a singular point of view, they won't click... and quite frankly, it doesn't.
