Film Director

With global and critical successes like the “Dark Knight” trilogy, “Inception” and “Interstellar” under his belt, the cerebral, visionary British writer-director is as distinctive a stylist as Hollywood has ever had. Fans praise the five-time Oscar nominee for his blend of brainy ideas, ambitious narrative structure, cutting-edge VFX and intense character focus, while Hollywood respects his nine films grossing more than $4.2 billion. After launching his career with daring lower-budget efforts like “Memento,” Nolan has employed increasingly bigger budgets to push the technical limits of filmmaking, shooting the Oscar fave WWII drama “Dunkirk” on large-format 65mm and IMAX. His Bat-licious “The Dark Knight” just enjoyed a limited IMAX re-release for its 10th anniversary.
