CHRISTIAN BALE ON THE DARK KNIGHT
So what new physical challenges did you face for The Dark Knight? 
We’ve gone a bit further with Keysi, the martial art we learned for the first one.
I’m actually learning how to do it more realistically than ever before, though it’s such an extremely violent way of fighting; there are literally moves where you tear someone’s cheek away from their face, or rip their nose off – every part of you becomes a weapon. It’s formidable.

Anyone hoping for a sex, drugs and  rock ‘n’ roll blowout will be disappointed: this is a mournful riff on  the nature of depression rather than a Cobain biopic. Rewarding Pay-Off: Less obscure then the tedious Gerry,  Van Sant’s return to indie filmmaking works a treat here, his  observational, detached style the perfect medium by which to portray a  man adrift. Disorientating, yes. Pointless, no.Action-Packed Alternative: Pining for jangling guitars and sex with groupies? Almost Famous is a more conventional portrayal of the rock star lifestyle…
