I loved this article so much that I have to share it. It uses Dostoevsky’s “The Grand Inquisitor,” the famous argument from The Brothers Karamazov, to inform readers and cinephiles on Nolan’s The Dark Knight, easily my favorite Batman film. It’s only a stretch if you dismiss The Dark Knight as something less than a work of philosophy. If you do so, I feel you’ve misunderstood the film.
“The Grand Inquisitor,” now, should be standard reading in schools, especially in schools with high percentages of Christian students. It argues, among other things, that it is Satan, not Christ, who drives the Catholic Church.
