Christopher Nolan on how Bacon's paintings inspired the Joker in 'The Dark Knight'.

Christopher Nolan reveals how paintings by Francis Bacon inspired the Joker's smeared make-up in 'The Dark Knight'. Nolan talks about his longstanding fascination for Bacon's work, and why, when words fail him, he turns to art to help shape his creative vision.

The film is one of a series in which leading creatives share artworks from Tate Britain's collection that have inspired them.
