Actor Eric Roberts thoughts on The Dark Knight


In a recent interview, ‘The Dark Knight’ Star Eric Roberts (Sal Maroni) voiced his opinion on ‘The Dark Knight’ and Director Christopher Nolan. Here is what he said:


“The Dark Knight” (2008): As a gangster named Maroni, Roberts had a minor but important role in “The Dark Knight.” Of director Christopher Nolan, he says, “He’s a real winner and he knows what he wants every second of every day.” But he’s not as admiring of the big budgets required of such blockbusters.

“What do you get out of a Batman movie? You get entertainment, that’s true. But what do you get to take home with you in your heart or your mind? It’s questionable for me. When a movie costs that much, so many movies don’t get made that can educate, enlighten, move, comfort. Batman didn’t do any of those things that I named, for me, anyway, even though I enjoyed watching it.”
