There’s a great retrospective of Christopher Nolan films at FilmLinc starting today (Friday) and running through Tuesday (9/18).
Mr. Nolan might be best known for his Batman/Dark Knight trilogy, but he’s also behind a slew of other fantastic films, including Memento and Inception to name a couple.
This is a great opportunity to catch some of those films on the big screen again.
From his auspicious debut with the micro-budget Following through to his epic reimagining of the Batman franchise and the mind-blowing Inception, Christopher Nolan has emerged as that rare contemporary filmmaker whose work is as intensely embraced, analyzed and debated by ordinary film fans as by critics and film academics.
One of the most innovative storytellers and image makers at work in movies today, Nolan has segued seamlessly from the margins of independent cinema to the top of the Hollywood A-list without sacrificing an ounce of his artistic integrity or his desire to test the narrative possibilities of commercial movies. Those same films have revealed Nolan as a master sleight-of-hand illusionist and an obsessive explorer of the human psyche, with a particular affinity for the tricks of perception and memory that allow us to deceive ourselves whether we are in the dream world of Inception or the sleep-deprived one of Insomnia.
On the occasion of his thrilling conclusion to the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, we are pleased to present this career retrospective, including an extended run of the rarely screened Following in a newly-restored 35mm print! Series programmed by Scott Foundas and Richard Peña.
Here’s a review of the aforementioned Following. I’d never heard of it prior to today, but it sound interesting.
