Now, without further ado, I've been working on a "top secret" (aka I didn't mention it and nobody much cared) project.
Though I'm no Matt Zoeller Seitz (and I thank you in advance for holding back your "We Know"s) I decided to try my hand at the video essay. Though it might be poor form for me to admit, I have to admit I'm happy with this, which is rare.
There were a few compromises I had to make in regards to film quality (especially on The Dark Knight clips) in order to get it out in a timely matter. I can only hope you will forgive them.
So before I talk it all the way to death, I present my essay. And if you want to embed on your own site, well that would be totally fucking cool.
EDIT: There is a content claim that might be fucking with my embedding. If you can't watch the embedded version. come here.
Just until I get this resolved. Or come to my senses and switch to Vimeo.
EDIT: Just in case.
