I thought it was very good. His quick decision making as Two-Face made sense with his character, too.
Though he WAS flipping with a two-headed coin

The guy's self-righteous and a believer in "justice" and the moral way... all while manipulating chance with a two-headed coin. He's a paradoxical character to begin with, Rachel's death and his scarring pushed him mentally over the edge and manifested itself physically. I absolutely loved how he was the tragic character of the film, along with Batman.
Personally, I really really enjoyed how Dent was continually juxtaposed against Batman, and then that press conference where he announces that he was Batman. It made for a nice, brief merging of the two, before they come apart again in a more extreme way.

Nope this god might actually exist or might not, we don't know; he's playing a game with us; see how evil he is!

The interrogation scene is one of the best scenes in recent cinema history. Period.
True, but neither is Batman and Rachel falling from the penthouse apartment on to a car relatively unscathed, you know? In the end, it's still fantastical realism.

I'm going to have to agree with your next point though. Fuck, it's almost as good as the baptism scene from There Will Be Blood.

As for Forever Eh, I know it's not popular. That's what I'm good for . I don't think anything can be as campy as 60s Batman, and I think we can both agree that nothing can be as bad as Batman & Robin? But since I was only 10 when that came out, in my mind TLJ has always = Two-Face. Does that make sense?
I'm going to have to disagree with you there. Maybe the point about him being the "savior of Gotham" and the "white knight" was hit on the head a bit too many, but in context, I think it makes perfect sense. To Bruce, he's the salvation of a normal life; to Gotham, he's the salvation of a city. What was made more important was that the "idea" of Harvey Dent was more important than the man, which also resonates with Batman. He can't be the "hero," in the classic sense, like Gordon says at the end, but he's the best thing Gotham has to a savior, protector, or what have you. I never thought it went into Sapville though... teetered on the line, but never crossed it.

It makes perfect sense, he's just more familiar with you as the character than anything else. It's like Frank Gorshin always being The Riddler to me, Burgess Meredith as The Penguin, etc...

How does that go again? The babel fish is proof that God exists, but there being proof makes God cease to exist?

Yeah, I know, but still, you can see that he's slipping there, just by his body language.

Eckhart was good, and would look a lot better if he wasn't surrounded by some great performances.

I don't have it yet. Getting it for my birthday (which is in a little over a month ). I'm listening to it on Napster. I couldn't wait any longer to hear October. Then I just couldn't stop myself.
