Christopher Nolan is one of the most inspiering film makers of our generration, Nolan has a amazing creative mind and a talent for movie making. Nolan had many films before it but he was really brought into the public eye after the successful reboot of the "Batman" franchise. Batman Begins took the caped crusader out of the crappy campyness that he was left in by Joel sumacker in Batman & Robin and made a new dark movie that Batman fans had been wanting forever. although the thing that makes Nolan stand out is that he is compeltly foucsed on making a great movie first, most film makers after a successful movie would get on the sequel right away however Nolen made the movie "The Pestige" before making the most successful comic book film and one of the most successful movies of all time. The Dark Knight was greated with so much hype that has not been seen for a movie since Star Wars Episode 1. and it was adord by fans and critics alike, being the secound highest blockbuster in amaricia at the time. It astonds me that not only was Nolan not nominated for best director for the film but the film wasn't nominated for best picture. the film did get a few oscers for sound, effects, and heath leager recived an oscer for his protrall of the Joker, sadly he was not alive to accept it. after the humogus success of The Dark Knight you would think that he would get on Batman 3 right away. but no he insted made inception another amazing pice of work from this briliant director. But even thought he was nominated for best director and the film was nominated for best picture he still left the oscers empty handed. However it is only a matter of time for this amazing director who is now working on the third batman film "The Dark Knight Rises" My Quote is the New Spilberg, now that is not to say that he and spilbergs movies are similer but like spilberg he is reinventing film making and story telling for the new generation. I haven't seen a bad film from him yet and I don't plan to. My overall grade for Christopher Nolen is a 5/5. just think of all the great movies that lie ahead for us that this great film maker is going to make. it is an awsome feeling.
