Nolan is one of those directors who does not make movies for the sake of money, he makes movies because he wants to tell a story and we can observe through his movies that he didn’t get attached to one topic like for example through BATMAN TRILOGY Nolan has given a perfect example of how to overcome your fear most passive your inner fear and through INCEPTION he showed us the world of Dreams and in INTERSTELLAR he conquered the space-time, wormhole, black hole, theory of relativity.
Nolan movies are near to perfect he didn’t like to use a green screen instead he uses real location for shooting.
Nolan has a great bond with time, he uses time as a tool in his movies. In his movies we find time as a central character and to be honest, you have to use your brain while watching NOLAN’S movies because he challenged his audience to think he takes his audience on a journey like they have never experienced before and most important NOLAN’S movies are quite paradoxical, he always chooses an open ending to his movies so that his audience can think even when the movie ends, that’s the charismatic power of NOLAN which makes you think beyond time, beyond space and most importantly he makes you look into your inner self.
His movies are quite philosophical and spiritual and that’s the reason he is being loved across the world.
