Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on casting Batman Begins (2005)] Batman is a marvelously complex character - somebody who has absolute charm and then, just like that, can turn it into ice-cold ruthlessness. There are very few actors who can do that, and Christian is one of them. See more »

Trivia:

Despite directing many acclaimed films, he has never been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director. See more »

Trademark:

His endings have a recurring theme of justified dishonesty. (Examples: Guy Pearce's "Do I lie to myself to be happy" monologue in Memento (2000), Michael Caine's closing remark that the audience "wants to be fooled" from The Prestige (2006) and Christian Bale's rationale of how the citizens of Gotham City "deserve to have their faith rewarded" at the end of The Dark Knight (2008)).
