Over the last few years, Christopher Nolan has rapidly established himself as one of Hollywood’s finest directors, despite his comparatively young age (42) in relation to many of his counterparts.
His career began in 1998 when his first feature, Following, generated a significant amount of buzz on the festival circuit, prompting the funding of his next film, Memento, which more than quadrupled its budget. A 2002 remake of the Norwegian film Insomnia (arguably Al Pacino’s last good film) then led to him being handed the reins to the Batman franchise, which was in tatters after the critical mauling that Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin had received.
The rest is, as they say, history. Batman Begins, released in 2005, rebooted the character in a dark and gritty fashion, spawning two sequels which both grossed over a billion dollars worldwide. All three received significant critical acclaim, with The Dark Knight even winning an Oscar »
