Bats everywhere: Batman Trilogy

Nolan’s choice in using the low key lighting significantly guides the audience into, not only intensifying the situation, but also creating an atmosphere of a dark and “thriller” type scene and makes the audience themselves feel apart of the situation and feel like a third perspective, watching the situation unfold without being able to do anything about it, like a bat in the room. Nolan’s manipulation of light has had a significant impact on the audiences perspective of the scene as it challenges the way we look at Batman and changes how the audience portrays Batman, not as a hero but rather a vigilant in a dark light. Nolan’s darker characteristics of the lighting brings a new idea of what a vigilante really means, with batman being that, and reflects the issues of the 2000s event the Twin Tower attack and the issues of wanting to change the government issues without authority.
