The US National Film Preservation Board announced the addition of culturally significant tapes to the Library of Congress registry. A total of 25 films were added to the register this year, including “Shrek”, “The Dark Knight” by Christopher Nolan and “A Clockwork Orange” by Stanley Kubrick.
Nolan had already responded to the council’s decision.
Not only is this a great honor for all of us who have worked on the film, it is also a tribute to all the artists and screenwriters who have worked on the Batman mythology for decades.
This year, the roster also includes The Hurt Locker (2008), The Man with the Golden Hand (1955) with Frank Sinatra, The Blues Brothers (1980), two silent films – Suspen (1913) and Bread “(1918).
The library was founded in 1988 and now has 800 paintings of cultural, historical or aesthetic significance. The main condition is the release date – only paintings that came out at least 10 years ago from the moment they entered the library can be added to the register.
