Perhaps an expensive, twisty conceptual thriller with a big, abstract title wasn't the best way for Christopher Nolan's cinematographer to distinguish himself as a director. Unlike his mentor, Pfister can't keep the silliness from going viral, as professor Depp's uploading of his consciousness provokes technophobic panic, existential questioning and way-cool special effects.

After recently cancelling their European tour for the second time it is obvious that Lemmy Kilmister, one of the immortal gods of rock n’ roll, is finally paying the price for a life of hard living and the herculean consumption of his beloved Jack Daniels.
