References to September 11 infuse the plot and images of producer and director Christopher Nolan’s 2008 film The Dark Knight. In this film, a city and its public servants are virtually taken hostage by a sociopathic villain interested in escalating violence against law enforcers and civilians alike while engineering these crises in a way that permits only morally problematic responses. Accordingly, this film stages that day’s events and with what possible effects for viewers who, just seven years later, would most likely be witnesses if not survivors of the hijackings. In effect, this film dramatizes September 11-generated, culturally traumatic impasses about balancing public safety and justice.
