Documentary filmmaker Ben Crew took to Twitter earlier this week to showcase an edit of Tim Burton’s 1989 film Batman which he had done. Crew took out the film’s sound and gave it a bit of a stylistic tweak to match the old silent films, and also praised Burton’s storytelling and visual skills, noting how well the film worked without sound.

A Twitter account dedicated to the film also surfaced this week, showing the film in its entirety (albeit cut into short videos), as well as a poster for the project, which you can see below:

For those who want to watch the film in its entirety, Crew has also uploaded the work to the Internet Archive, where fans can view it or download it themselves. The total running time of the project is just over two hours, and judging by the small clips available across social media, the level of attention and detail to the editing is more than worth watching.
