Personal Quote:

[on Memento (2000)] The budget was about £ 3 million, which is low for an independent film - but yes, it was a huge leap of faith. "Memento" was clearly on a bigger scale than Following (1998) but, at the same time, there were very strong stylistic connections. People want to see something that shows them you can do what you say. That's the trick. See more »

Trivia:

His first feature Following (1998) was made for only 6,000 pounds and was shot mostly on weekends for about a year, because the cast and crew all had full-time jobs. See more »

Trademark:

His films often have obsessive protagonists with a troubled past, who are obsessed to gain justice by any means in life (e.g. Leonard in Memento (2000), Al Pacino's character in Insomnia (2002), Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins (2005). Also the protagonist of Following (1998) and Hugh Jackman in The Prestige (2006) were obsessive) See more »
