Films of Christopher Nolan

I'm sure I wasn't the only one a little disappointed that Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) walked away with the Oscar for Best Director at the 83rd Academy Awards instead of David Fincher (The Social Network). However, the more disappointing aspect of the Best Director award was Christopher Nolan wasn't even nominated for his amazing work on Inception. All of the practical shooting that happened on set without the assistance of visual effects was worth the nomination by itself. Thankfully DJC Productions has paid tribute to Nolan's work in the aptly named Nolanography, a montage looking back at the director's films.

You can find a longer Chris Nolan tribute here, if you didn't like this one. Inspired by the year-end montage Filmography 2010 which we highlighted late last year, DJC Productions takes clips from Nolan's films and tosses them into a great montage featuring the song Nostrand by Ratatat. Though there's definitely much more of The Dark Knight and Inception than his other films, it is still a great look back at all of Nolan's work in a short, fun package. There's plenty of great intercutting between lines from The Prestige, Memento and more. So enjoy the video, and let's hope Chris Nolan actually gets a Best Director nod sometime soon.

    Now this is something I really like. A montage to, in my opinion, one of the greatest directors of our time. Well done!
    • Derek
      i think it could be argued that he is THE BEST DIRECTOR OF THE LAST DECADE... Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, & Inception... nobody else has a resume that impressive over the last 10 years... ...but yet he has been given the shaft by the academy 3 or 4 times in years that he should have been nominated... i think it would really be hard to argue against him as the most underrated...!

    Truly well done! I was not expecting something that good. Very good montage.
  • Chris
    No love for the "Following"?
    • JL
      Maybe the people that made that montage never saw it.

    I've seen all his films and i love every one (with the exception of insomnia the story wasn't all that great and i later learned it was the only film he didn't wright) his films have mesmerism me and always through me for a loop! I believe he is one of the greatest directors of our time possibly ever in my opinion he has already surpassed Kubrick. They should have shown some "following" its his oldest but still one of the best he made!

    This was amazing. I do admit I'm a Nolanite but still this made me shit my pants in utter Glee! God! I can't wait for Dark Knight Rises!!

    Good montage, but what's up with omitting "Following"? for real? Also that choice of electronica music sucked. This was good, but could've better.... For instance, the David Fincher one that FS.net dropped a few months ago....that was BOSS!

    This triggered a 30-minute rant from me raging about the fact that Nolan didn't even get a nomination for best director this year. I'm sure my husband appreciated that outburst. =P

    the only other director producer i dig since 2000 is peter jackson, he actually uses the CGI with maturity and not just eye candy. Nolan is definately my current fav though. http://images.wikia.com/lotr/images/a/af/Eye-of-sauron.jpg

    What about Insomnia and Following. I mean, that's a good montage but the song has been used before and although the editing is ok, it's not hard to just get amazing scenes together in a clip. It's definately not a "must watch" if you disregard two major films of a director and even calling it "Nolanography"...

    Talk about hype! Where are the clips from Following or Insomnia?!! Not so popular films but Nolanverse none the less. This is the main reason of my dislike for the 2008-2010 Nolan fans

    This sucked. He only focused on The Dark Knight and Inception, and didn't even include Following and Insomnia.
    • Anonymous
      Yeah, Following wasn't in there, but I am pretty sure I saw Al Pacino in there somewhere two or three times.
  • Alejandro
    why do i get the feeling that the one that made this clip got the idea from this one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4dEWOB6THE
    • JL
      Yeah, and that one was a hundred times better than this one. Nolan's work deserves a better homage than this.
      • Denden41327
        Fuck off
  • Sleemans
    Only director whom I feel is as good as Nolan would have to be Danny Boyle. Both superb directors....

    Who's the best? Nolan.

    I love Mr. Nolan....but Ethan your first statement really pissed me "beyond off!" Mr. Hooper deserved the award for Best Director, and Mr. Nolan did deserve to have at least a nomination. But if you are over 30 years young....you really did not like or care for the GD "Space Box" film....really over-rated and to add insult to injury, Mr. Zimmer's score was beyond brilliant note for note for "Inception" and was robbed by a dull, lifeless score for 'Space Box." ( IMHO)
  • Brian
    That was awesome!
  • Last Son
    In Nolan We Trust.............. After Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan is the second greatest director working today.
  • Epicalzamora
    Following? Insomnia?
  • Fisherr
    Nolan is the best Director i have experienced during my entire life and he is my most favorite and DOTY for me as well.
