Subjective vs. Objective

The Dark Knight has some of the finest attention to detail I've ever seen in any movie. The movie relies a lot on the subjective storytelling and leaves many things behind the scenes, but it always leaves clues that relate to the outcome. Like the fact that Ramirez and Wuertz are on mob's payroll. Ramirez gives it all away in a throwaway line about her mother, and Wuertz is seen earlier in the movie when Joker crashes the party with Wuertz covering him. You can basically put two and two together. The movie doesn't need to actually show us the corruption in order to make it feel present. That's how corruption works in the real world. You don't see it, but you notice clues when people are corrupt.
