Though filming has been underway for quite some time now, the casting additions to Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises seem to keep piling up in droves. Most recently was last month’s announcement that Adam Rodriguez, perhaps best known for his work on CSI: Miami, would be joining the crew. It doesn’t look like Nolan and company are quite finished, though, as Rob Brown, the star of 2008′s moderately acclaimed but financially disappointing The Express, has also come on board the cast.

As you’ve probably heard countless times already, Nolan‘s group of performers for this installment — Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, and Juno Temple — is absolutely stacked. I have a sneaking suspicion, however, that the group of characters may be getting out of hand — how much ground, after all, is it possible to sufficiently cover in a single film? — but Nolan has never made a single misstep in his career so far, and it’s hard to imagine that he’ll start here.
The Dark Knight Rises will hit theaters on July 20th, 2012. Do yourself a favor — if you haven’t already — and simply try and tune out the plethora of on-set footage that’s been hitting the web. I haven’t given a single viral video an actual look since back when Bane’s costume was first caught on tape, and it just feels right.
Do you have any concerns about the ever-growing cast? Any thoughts on the addition of Brown?
In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
