Christopher Nolan’s Greatest Films Thus Far In His Career
Christopher Nolan has quickly risen through the ranks to become one of the greatest directors in the game. Honestly, at this point, it seems that he is only second to James Cameron when it comes to the best directors out there. He is truly brilliant and all of his movies are great.
But which have been Christopher Nolan’s best films? These are my top five favorites.
Memento was Nolan’s second full length feature movie, and to this day, remains one of the best movies to be released from 2000 to 2010. This movie stars Guy Pearce as a detective hunting down his wife’s killer. The only problem is he has short term amnesia.
The Prestige is another movie that absolutely makes the cut for me. One of my favorite movies in recent memory, The Prestige is a film that you can watch several times and learn something new each and every time. A fantastic film that didn’t get enough love.
It goes without saying that Insomnia makes the list for me. This movie stars Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank in a peculiar story about a murder in a town where it is always daylight. If you like murder mysteries, this is a great one.
Inception is by far and away Nolan’s most impressive movie yet. I cannot believe how incredible this movie was. This movie is impossible to explain the plotline of, but basically involves stealing ideas from people’s dreams and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Cilian Murphy, and Michael Caine.
There is one other film of Nolan’s that I feel is worth mentionng. Of course, I am talking about The Dark Knight. This is a truly amazing film and it is so much more than just another comic book movie. Everything about this film is incredible.
Until the third Batman movie comes out, this is my list of the best Christopher Nolan movies.
