5 Things You Will Find In Every Christopher Nolan Movie

Christopher Nolan movies are a genre of their own and a growing fan base as well. The director loves the theatrical experience and makes sure that even during the streaming boom, people are still going to the theatres to enjoy the cinematic experience. Christopher Nolan who prefers not to carry a cell phone is also known for his disapproval of using CGI over practical effects going out of his way to create massive set pieces and action effects without the use of CGI. But that is not the only commonality you will find across his films, here are some more things you will find in a Christopher Nolan movie.

Nolan doesn’t waste time..it’s “go” from the start

Christopher Nolan doesn’t believe in wasting the audiences’ time and from the first scene itself, he throws us into the middle of the things giving explanations along the way. You are immersed in the world he is creating from that very scene, and that’s when you know you are watching a Nolan movie.

Count on all his scenes backed by haunting, organic sound

In most of his recent movies, Hans Zimmer has provided the sound but even for the ones where he hasn’t a Nolan movie soundtrack hits different. He uses organic sounds you might hear in the setting like a clock ticking or a foghorn to create tension in scenes and give it momentum. Even in Interstellar, he used an organ that gave us the space vibes in those scenes. You are not just watching the characters; you are with them.

Nothing is linear…nothing

Filmmakers often go back and forth with various storytelling techniques, but Christopher Nolan time and again has chosen a non-linear method for his movies. There are flashbacks and flashforwards and sometimes at the same time from a different angle.

There’s something about the movie title

The title of a Christopher Nolan movie never comes at the beginning of the movie. It comes at the end against a black backdrop with a simple font with letters spaced out to cover the breadth of the screen. Although Interstellar onwards, Nolan has moved the title card to the beginning of the movie with the same font.

His movies never really end

Well, yes the movie technically ends as the credits roll, but discussions and theories about the movie never do. Even after a decade since its releases, the ending of Inception can still be a conversation on a dinner table. At the same time, there are new details discovered by ardent movie watchers even now.

Which of these things about a Christopher Nolan movie have you noticed? Upvote to tell us.
