The Dark Knight. USA, 2008 (152 minutes). Director: Christopher Nolan. Cast: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal.

The dark face of Batman characterizes Christopher Nolan's second, feverish approach to the character. The Dark Knight delves into his torment, although the film soon reveals who its true protagonist is: a monumental Joker, played by a superlative Heath Ledger, who has become the absolute master of a story that is equally oppressive, baroque, dense and colorful in parts . Nolan's production does the rest in an essential work of American cinema of this century.


10 p.m., Movistar Classics

Serpico, by Sidney Lumet

USA, 1973 (120 minutes). Director: Sidney Lumet. Actors: Al Pacino, John Randolph, Tony Roberts.

Serpico, one of the highlights of Sidney Lumet's filmography, is characterized by the filmmaker's intention to make critical and angry films, which are almost always characterized by a certain hopelessness. Police corruption is a constant in his work, an area in which he has delivered masterpieces such as The Prince of the City. Frank Serpico is a young police officer who has to confront a police bribery network. His bitter adventures help Lumet create a film with sober direction and great dramatic efficiency.
