I’d like to take a moment to spare a thought for the victims of the shooting in Denver. Obviously a host of pieces much more insightful than mine have been written already in the aftermath to this tragedy, from midnight movies to gun control. But I won’t be talking about that.

This piece will basically be here instead of my review of Chris Nolan’s superb The Dark Knight Rises. I didn’t feel quite right writing a review of it after this happened.

Of course, the debate around the issue, America’s gun control laws and so forth, will doubtless continue. As it should. It just shouldn’t take a tragedy of this magnitude to get people talking about it.

I don’t ask much, just that, if you read this, that you spare a thought for those who died in the shooting.

Thank you.
