Jonathan Major a very talented actor with some great roles! In a short time, he became an actor enjoyed by the audience and a favorite of the fans. He has been involved in projects such as Land of Lovecraft, Lokiand Devotion. He is set to appear Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and faith III.
The actor recently wrote an article for Variety. Christopher Nolan‘s Black Knight and the experience of watching it. In the essay, he discusses how the film shows audiences what it means to be human.
It’s great to get such insight from another actor and I appreciate his thoughts on one of my favorite Batman movies. Here is that post:
“The Dark Knight” by Christopher Nolan is one of those rare films that make our retinas wave with color palettes and patterns that prescribe meaning, while at the same time entertaining the audience at the highest level in terms of cinematography, forcing the viewer to reach higher in their own self and social knowledge in every frame. and provokes discussions in our imagination and our collective unconscious. Have you noticed how both Christian Bale’s Batman and Ledger’s Joker have eyes painted alike, how oil and charcoal are blackened by what seems like a love child, as if these two men had seen the same things, no matter how different they looked and maybe seeing them the same way? This moral theme and argument predominates throughout the painting. What is right and what is wrong? My 18-year-old self sat in the movie theater long after the credits rolled, stunned by the beauty and complexity of humanity, hitherto unheard of in cinema and daring to say it in my own existence.
They were the same. How was this possible? After all, one is Batman “good guy” and the other is Joker “bad guy”. What made them different was what they decided to do after seeing and reckoning with an ambiguous and fluid Gotham that was as morally challenging as the characters that filled the police force. All the actors embody their characters in such an easy and relatable way.
And the film asks what it is to be human, to be alive and to participate fully in one’s own life. “The Dark Knight” very vividly portrays the agnostic survival ethic and discipline of kindness. The second film in Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy contains an impregnable truth in its running time: Life and people are beautifully complex and unfolding. It is this fact that made the “Dark Knight” stand up and stand out years later. In my many rewatches, he continues to show me the agility of the human spirit. Together with perhaps one of the greatest rivalries of all time between Bale’s Batman and Ledger’s Joker to become “celluloid”, it shows that every step of our lives leads us towards becoming the hero or villain of our fairy tale. And the few things that can truly guide us are empathizing with a stubborn belief in the well-being of ourselves, others, and our own personal Gotham, and our hope for a greater tomorrow. follow the good, believe in the good.
