THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
2012, Warner Bros., 165 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Nolan

Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) finds himself up against both relentless evil force Bane (Tom Hardy) and mysterious jewel thief Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) as he is wrenched from retirement by the threatened destruction of all of Gotham City. Christopher Nolan wraps up his Batman trilogy with a satisfying, complex and insanely ambitious meditation on heroism and class that is arguably the greatest comic book film of all time.


INTERSTELLAR
2014, Paramount, 169 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Nolan

In the not-too-distant future, life on Earth can no longer sustain itself. It’s up to pilot-turned farmer-turned-astronaut Matthew McConaughey (with an assist from scientist Anne Hathaway) to head into space to look for new worlds to inhabit. Combining family drama with eye-popping visuals and mind-expanding philosophical inquiry, Nolan’s sci-fi epic is one of the few films that not only invites but earns comparison with 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.


FOLLOWING
1998, IFC Films, 69 min, UK, Dir: Christopher Nolan

In writer-director Christopher Nolan’s startling feature debut, an aspiring author (Jeremy Theobald) researches his first book by following strangers in London. One of these, the dark, stylish Cobb (Alex Thaw), catches the young man in the act and befriends him. But Cobb is a burglar, and his follower grows to love the illicit thrills of breaking and entering - until the two steal from a blonde (Lucy Russell) who turns out to be a gangster’s girlfriend. Shot in black-and-white on a shoestring budget, the film keeps audiences guessing with a nonlinear storytelling style similar to Nolan’s breakthrough follow-up, MEMENTO. “A taut, ingenious British neo-noir.” - Los Angeles Times
