"Freaks dressed like clowns": 8 notes on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

1) I reacted to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice much like Quentin Compson responds to the question "Why do you hate the South. " at the end of Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom. I don't hate it. I don't hate it. ". 2) Me, soon after seeing the movie: "I liked Wonder Woman. Why does the theater audience cheer when Wonder Woman finally arrives to fight. If one views all of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as an elaborate way to get the viewer curious about Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), then the movie succeeds. " By not answering that question, Zack Snyder did something right. I was confused at times by BvS , but in the long run, I would just as soon not have any idea what was going on--let the movie wash over me in a disconnected Terrence Malickian dream vision. 3) Unlike, say, James Mason's suave Phillip Vandamm in Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) comes across as awkwardly adolescent and incompetent. Midway through the storyline, he gives a hesitant rambling speech that no one appears to listen to at a high class social function. Why does Zack Snyder undermine his character. Lex does make a nice point to Senator Finch (Holly Hunter) about how the "oldest lie in America" is "that power can be innocent," but Superman never seems much affected by that sense of a higher law. By the by, why has the doubtless intelligent Jesse Eisenberg allowed himself to suddenly become overexposed in so many movies. 4) Almost simultaneously ( spoiler alert ), upon hearing the word "Martha," both Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) reveal, during the climax of their epic building-shattering fight, that they both have unresolved mother issues. A late-inning alien monster named Doomsday romps around snarling like a big ugly baby, tearing up the landscape with much computer-generated abandon. There's something about these PG-13 movies that arrive with much disaster porn gravitas, but they remain emasculated. Perhaps for that reason, Zack Snyder promises to release a more manly R-rated version later soon enough on Blu-ray. 5) Ben Affleck has the settled, grizzled, stubbled, iconographic, and somehow rather thick face of a man who knows that he has the lead role in a major upcoming tentpole blockbuster movie. 7) It's always nice when the screenwriters give Lois Lane (Amy Adams) something to do with herself (aside from being saved by Superman) late in the storyline amidst all of the earth-moving, building-crashing, CGI hoopla.
