Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite film-makers, I feel in love with his movies when I watch Memento (2000) 18 years ago, and have loved every movie he’s made since then. Today we list the ultimate Christopher Nolan Marathon list, Enjoy!
1. Memento (2000) – This movie only took 25 days to shoot
2. Insomnia (2002) – The only movie where Nolan is not credited for writing the movie, even though, he wrote the final draft
3. Batman Begins (2005) – Nolan was so fascinated with Cillian Murphy’s bright blue eyes that he kept trying to find reasons to have Crane remove his glasses.
4. The Prestige (2006) – Nolan meticulously studied Tesla’s experiments to recreate them with integrity. Especially the light globe scene.
5. The Dark Knight (2008) – Heath Ledger created the make-up for The Joker, when Nolan saw it, he immediately asked his make up team to recreate it.
6. Inception (2010) – Leonardo DiCaprio provided a lot of feedback and changes to the actual script. Nolan was quoted as saying “Once Leo came on board, I spent months and months sitting with him and discussing the script”
7. The Dark Knight Rises (2012) – This movie was the fastest to shoot out of all of Nolan’s Batman movies.
8. Interstellar (2014) – The plot of this movie was so secretive, Matthew McConaughey didn’t even revel the plot to his wife until the post-production was complete.
9. Dunkirk (2017) – The ticking sounds that serve as the crucial theme on the Dunkirk’s score were recorded by Hans Zimmer from one of Nolan’s own pocket watches.
