While director Christopher Nolan and cinematographer Wally Pfister have a long standing relationship that stretches all the way back to Nolan's 2001 directorial debut Memento, it sounds like the filmmaker is taking on a different collaborator for his upcoming WWII drama Dunkirk. While many suspected that Wally Pfister would be coming aboard, Nolan has instead decided to go with his Interstellar director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema. The movie shoots this summer.
Dunkirk was announced in late December as director Christopher Nolan's next project. He has since been busy prepping the true-life tale. Composer Hans Zimmer, who created all of the music for the Dark Knight trilogy will be back to score the adventure drama. And the secondary cast is being played by heavy hitters such as Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh. The main actors in the film will be mostly unknowns, which are still in the process of being cast. »
When Christopher Nolan went into outer space for "Interstellar," it was without longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister, who had been with the director since "Memento," but turned to a directing career of his own starting with the unfortunate "Transcendence." Nolan's choice to lens his ode to the galactic power of love was Hoyte van Hoytema, who had quite the resumé behind him with "The Fighter," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," and "Her." And it seems Nolan was pleased his work on "Interstellar."

The last time I went to the restaurant in the Regency Hotel on Park Avenue was to meet Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth for their film 20,000 Days On Earth and Nick Cave stopped by for a greeting. Atom Egoyan's terrifically paced thriller Remember, written by Benjamin August, starring Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau with Bruno Ganz, Heinz Lieven, Dean Norris and Jürgen Prochnow is structured in the spirit of a cumulative tale. We spoke about the residual idea of The Sound Of Music, North By Northwest and Slavoj Žižek, meeting Son Of Saul director László Nemes in Sarajevo, Christopher Nolan's Memento and Leviticus.

When Memento arrived in 2001, it was a total buzzfest: Everyone was talking about it. It had a Wachowski level of cool (even co-starring Wachowski favorites Joe Pantoliano and Carrie-Anne Moss), it had a gritty noir sensibility, and an innovative time-bending structure deftly designed to get you inside the brain-damaged mind of Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce). It left Sundance that January with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, hit movie theaters in March, and when awards season came it was nominated for an Oscar for the Screenplay (Chris Nolan's first Oscar nomination) as well as the Editing prize. The movie has lost none of its cachet in the intervening years, retaining a 92% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and clocking in at #46 on the IMDb Top 250.
But I have a personal reason for loving this movie, as well as a story (I always have a story) if you'll indulge me after the jump. »
