Following (1998) Poster



Jump to: Director Trademark (1)
Christopher Nolan came up with the idea for the film because he had his home broken into and wondered what the people thought as they went around looking at his belongings.
The second apartment Bill and Cobb break into (which is Bill's own apartment) has a Batman sticker on the door. Christopher Nolan would later go on to direct Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012).
This is Christopher Nolan's directorial debut with a feature-length film.
Principal photography of this film took over one year. Because all cast and crew members had other full-time jobs they were only able to film on Saturdays about 15 minutes of footage until photography had been completed.
The surname Cobb is also used by the character Dom Cobb, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, in Nolan's 2010 film Inception (2010).
The clock that Cobb steals is the same clock as in Christopher Nolan's Memento (2000).
One of the things Bill has stolen is the soundtrack to the movie Trainspotting (1996).
There is a painting by Mark Rothko hanging on the wall of Young Man's room, visible when he visits it with Cobb.

Christopher Nolan:  [credit card break-in]  Cobb attempts to break into a flat using a credit card. The same method is used in Memento (2000) and Insomnia (2002).
