I haven't actually disliked any of them, though I haven't seen The Prestige. Even Insomnia works well enough.

To me this isn't even close, it's Memento. I loved The Prestige as well, and thought Insomnia and Batman Begins were decent, but Memento is just leagues ahead of all of them. In my mind this is like asking who the most talented member of Nirvana was.

"Don't Like" seemed too strong, so I voted "Memento" ... but I would have been really tempted by a "meh" option.

Nolan has yet to make me go gah gah over a film yet.

He doesn't make bad films, but when looking at those movies it is hard for me to say one is his best.

Mad props for his rampant use of Wally Pfister. Any time one Wally see's another get some serious good work it is a thrill*


Imagine our thrill at both Wally Pfister (DP on Dark Knight) and the pixar film Wall-E repping Wally's around the world in full force this summer.

Expect a ton of march babies next year to be Wallys... our brood GROWS!!!!

The Prestige has a brilliant visual style to it and I've always been fond of Bale and Jackman.
It has a haunting story that's rather well told. Yeah, The Prestige.

Wow.  I'm the lone vote for Insomnia, huh?  I'm probably the only person here who thought Memento was a good idea and mediocre execution, too.

My second votes would be to either Batman Begins or The Prestige.  I loved both of those, but there were too many "STUFF GOES BOOM!" moments in Batman (which I blame more on the screenwriter David Goyer than on Nolan), and I only watched The Prestige once, and I have a sneaking suspicion that it won't hold up a second time.

The Dark Knight* Christopher Nolan, 2008

When I first watched this, I thought it was lots of fun, but now it's nothing but a drag. Nothing but characters barking out exposition like it's the most serious thing in the world or blurting out the themes that are already implicit in the action of the film. This wouldn't bug me so much if Nolan was an interesting stylist, or if he brought anything to his action sequences besides confusion, but he does neither. But, anyway, this is all just rehashed arguments from 3 years ago. Duh.

I recently rewatched this too and I've now seen it so many times that the action sequences are much easier to follow. Just another way Nolan is rewarding revisits of his films.

Harvey Dent has escaped, Batman is gone, so yeah, there's no other reason for him to be there. He leaves. It's pretty easy to figure out. But just in case, would it really matter if he killed all of those people? No, it doesn't really matter at all.

Since I first saw it when it came out this has been the question that has bugged me and kind of ruined the whole experience of the movie for me. Well that and the corny monologue by Gordon at the very end. "He's running because we have to chase him."  ::)

1. Memento (1999). Seeing 'Memento' on opening night at the defunct Sundance theater in Portland is one of the most memorable movie-going experiences I have ever had.  (Grade: A+)

2. The Prestige (2006).  I love just about everything about this film.  (Grade: A+)

3. The Dark Knight (2008).  Notwithstanding the narrative pacing (turned to 11 out of 10 throughout the 2 1/2+ hours), like Roger Ebert (and not being a fanboy), I feel like this is the superhero film I always wanted.  (Grade: A)

4. Inception (2010).  Boasting the boldest of plots, this nonetheless really established Nolan, in my mind, as the new reigning king of the Great Big Film - everything I want in a summer blockbuster.  (Grade: A)

5. The Dark Knight Rises (2012).  Notwithstanding the textual density and the fact that it doesn't stand alone as well as the other two, it is a technically adept film that almost perfectly ends a trilogy - a rare thing indeed.  (Grade: A-)

6. Batman Begins (2005).  This could be the best superhero film ever ... if you just count the first two acts.  In the third act, Nolan goes a little too Burton.  (Hey, I like Burton, but I would have preferred to stay in Nolan's universe.)  (Grade: B+)

7. Insomnia (2002).  I really liked the way it was shot and the underrated performances all the way around.  Perhaps, it is one of the few examples of a U.S. remake that is better than the original.  (Grade: B+)

8. Following (1997)  It was a great idea, but not-so-great execution (kinda how I feel about Aronofsky's 'Pi'), but it is still good enough to solidify my opinion that Nolan has yet to make a bad film. (Grade: B-)

The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan, 2012) (http://processedgrass.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-many-years-can-some-people-exist.html)

Finality can be unsettling. I recall most of the major occurrences of finality in my life fairly clearly. For better or worse time carries on and chapters of life (this is a phrase I detest, by the way) inevitably draw to a close as we continue throttling forward. As I stood waiting in line at the IMAX, about an hour and a half before Christopher Nolan's final entry in the Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises, was set to start the idea of conclusion was set firmly in my mind. After seven years he was prepared to move on, to put a bow on top of the series and pack up. And about 4 hours later, coming out of the theater, the conflicted feelings I usually have with confronting finality were still present in full force. Is this what it's like to end, can it be a satisfying conclusion, or will it all collapse under the weight of the previous movies?

Certainly it is the end in a sense. Nolan and Bale are both intent to move forward. Satisfying is a quite a stretch though, because when I think back to the majority of Christopher Nolan's Batman films 'satisfying' is perhaps the word I'm least likely to use, and all of the flaws that I felt were noticeable underneath of the gloss of the previous entries are magnified here in such a way that the sheer excessive heft of the film becomes almost as imposing as Bane.

Most notably the action sequences in the film, few and far between which is quite a feat for a movie that approaches three hours in run time, are generally marked by a camera that has trouble keeping track of everything that is going one. The opening sequence of the film, likely the most successful action bit of the entire movie, cuts and jumps around a bit too much, but is partially saved because it culminates in one of very few filled frames found in the film. As the movie progresses and the action becomes a bit more sprawling the cuts still happen frequently, and to further complicate matters the central figures fall in and out of the center of frame. Now I know everyone doesn't need to be in the center of the screen all the time, this isn't Wes Anderson, but most of the time it seemed as if there was no reason for the camera not to be squarely fixed on Batman and Bane rather than the tangential action.

Speaking of Bane, as a villain he also doubles as a symbol of all the problems that tend to plague this film. I used the word imposing earlier, and that's exactly the problem. The movie's score, generally a tool meant to underscore or enhance the tone of a scene, towers over the entire film in a Bane~esque manner. Like the villain, each time music is employed in the film it encompasses the entire scene. Yet in the one scene that could have most benefit from a heavy score (where a seemingly cataclysmic event happens about halfway through), it was notably absent as the action went on. One of the biggest problems I had with Inception and The Dark Knight was the tonal inconsistency of each film. This has been completely rectified here, but it's done so with all the grace of smashing a rock to one's face.

I think the reason I get disappointed by a film like The Dark Knight Rises, and to a large extent all of the Nolan films I have seen, is because he's able to assemble these impressive ensemble casts and in the end the results consistently leave me feeling empty. Take, for instance, Tom Hardy's turn as Bane. Hardy may very well be one of the five greatest living actors, from his physical tour-de-force in Bronson to his nuanced turn in Warrior his physicality is matched only by the depth his expression brings to many of his roles. Yet because Bane is masked he's left to rely on using his body to sell his performance. The problem is that oftentimes the camera focuses on his face, and ultimately his performance feels restrained rather than this physical specimen of terror. Bale is similarly limited, but in his case the film sets him up to be downtrodden much of the movie and it partially works. But then there are people like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard who both have, at points in their careers, given incredible performances but here are reduced either to parodies of self (in the case of Gordon-Levitt) or bland characters meant to be more important than the script allows (Cotillard).

Yet in the center of this mess there's a thread that connects everyone. Anne Hathaway's turn as Selina Kyle is both a marvel of physicality while also a testament to her talents as an actress. It's been a while since Rachel Getting Married, and for me it was easy to forget just how great she can be when she's not just phoning in a rom-com. The character is given enough time to develop in the film, and unlike Cotillard's Miranda Tate, Kyle feels central to the film. Her character seems to have an awareness and sincerity that was lacking from all of the other new characters.

The blame for this falls on the script, and where Inception may have been tonally inconsistent The Dark Knight Rises is perhaps even more infuriating because of how thematically inconsistent it is by the end. For the majority of the film's first hour or so there are constant references to the populist movement, yet as the film progresses it's continually undercut by both the heroes and villains, which would be fine, but it rears its head toward the end again before an inevitable return to normalcy. I've seen plenty of interesting meandering works, ones that actively resist answers or simplistic binaries, but in so many other areas both this film and the series has been marked by binaries or easily identifiable archetypes that here it's especially jarring.

Jarring is actually an apt word to describe my feelings about Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Sometimes you can't help but feel jarred when confronting finality, but upon exiting the theater and even now I'm not sure it's a prerequisite. While in the past the flaws have been masked by pacing or the charm of central actors, this film revels in its hollowness. The themes are embryonic, perhaps indicative of humanity itself, but doing so in a film with hardly an echo of genuine humanity seems counter-intuitive. And that just leaves me depressed. Not for the state of our world, not for the characters in the film, but for cinema. That's a terrible feeling.

EDIT: As usual at my blog there's a numerical rating, pictures, and some tangential thoughts that didn't really fit in to the review anywhere, so check that out if you want.

The Dark Knight  (Christopher Nolan, 2008)

IMAX didn't change my opinion as much as I expected.  The full IMAX shots are generally fantastic, definitely improving the Hong Kong sequence among others, and the switch between aspect ratios wasn't too distracting — save at the beginning of the hospital exterior, which briefly took me out of the one moment I had been waiting for the whole film.

Given the scope of the film and the scale of the production (I can't believe they spent the money on that forty second shot with the yacht), it's surprisingly clumsy.  The staging of the dumb fingerprint-on-the-bullet scene is a great example of this clumsiness; and I never figured out why Marconi's tip to the cops never led to anything.  Nolan's strategy here seemed to be to plow through as much as possible, overwhelming us so that we don't have time to notice the flaws.  It's actually an approach I like — sometimes it works, sometimes not — but one consequence is that the film becomes a little flat, rarely pausing to let key moments have enough impact.  In that way, it reminds me of the first Harry Potter film.  Stuff happens and then more stuff happens, and scene by scene it's interesting enough, but there's rarely as much cumulative effect as I feel there should be.  (Granted, Dark Knight's best moments easily outshine Sorcerer's Stone's.) 

With the obvious exception of Ledger, the acting is pretty sketchy.  Gyllenhaal is rather horribly miscast; her scene with Lau is especially laughable.  Eckhardt is passable as Dent, though has some bad moments of his own, and Bale is more awkward than not.  His Bruce Wayne doesn't exude enough intelligence, for one thing, but really he's just not that interesting of a presence here.  His speech at the fundraiser seems especially bothersome to me (not at all helped by the worst moment of the film's score).  Oldman, Caine, and Freeman are dependable, at least, though the film doesn't ask that much of them.  But Caine ("Some men just want to watch the world burn.") and Freeman ("And your plan is to blackmail this person? ... Good luck.") get the only two lines in the film that are half as memorable as anything said by the Joker.  Oh, unless you count Bale's brilliant, [gruff]"I'm not wearing hockey shorts."[/gruff]  I should probably add one more Joker line ("I'm not a monster.  I'm just ahead of the curve.") to the For Your Consideration thread, but maybe we have enough Dark Knight lines already.  Better just to nominate that whole interrogation scene.

In conclusion, I've run out of things to say.

Grade: B

The Dark Knight Rises  (Christopher Nolan, 2012)
2008 pixote makes some good points, many of which are perhaps even more applicable to The Dark Knight Rises. The new film is just as impressive in its scope – magnified by the IMAX screen – and in the effort that went into it, to the point that I feel almost guilty for not enjoying it more. Nolan again rushes us through this long, epic, rollercoaster ride, like a magician using misdirection so we don't catch on to any of the holes in his tricks; and Hans Zimmer plays the magician's assistant, with his score operating at crescendo for nearly the full running time of the film, constantly prodding us with a locomotive's linear propulsiveness, "this-is-exciting-this-is-exciting-this-is-exciting-don't-look-back-don't-look-back-this-is-exciting-this-is-exciting!" But it's not always exciting. Bale's normal Batman was pretty boring, but his emo Batman is even worse. And yet when he pretty much disappears from the narrative for a full half hour, I realized that I missed him, because he's at least more interesting than Bane. Frank Langella does his best in the role, but the mask prevents him from giving the character any color, and he makes the odd choice to voice him as if he were still playing Nixon, had Nixon ever tried to do a drunk Jean-Luc Picard impression. It's the first time in the series I wasn't annoyed by Bane's Batman voice, just because Bane's voice overshadowed it. Anne Hathaway, like Heath Ledger before her, is rather delightful here, though perhaps I'm just grateful to each of them for daring to sneak personality into Nolan's universe. I was disappointed Joseph Gordon-Levitt wasn't given more interesting things to do, but his look out into the bay was a nice highlight. And it's too bad the editing here wasn't an improvement over that in the previous film, as the opening scene on the plane makes immediately clear. Despite all the problems, though, it's still an impressive ride and one I don't regret taking, even if I did spend most of the time trying convince myself that it really was Ed Begley, Jr. playing the role of the assistant commissioner. (Poor Matthew Modine.)
Grade: B-

That's what I thought. I'll have to listen to the voice again, I never got a Nixon or Picard vibe (though I've only seen a few episodes of ST:TNG).

EDIT: Damn it, missed opportunity about not expecting humour to be associated with Nolan or something.

"As far as I can tell, no popular filmmaker’s work of recent years has received the sort of harsh, meticulous dissection Jim Emerson and A. D. Jameson have applied to Nolan’s films. "

James Cameron is (based on his last 2 films) THE most popular filmmaker, and he is harshly, meticulously dissected way more than Christopher Nolan.
Title: Re: Nolan, Christopher - Directors Best Poll
Post by: Bondo on August 23, 2012, 06:52:45 AM
I don't feel like Cameron is that heavily dissected, he just gets backlash generally. With Avatar they just went "redundant plot with some silly names" and left it at that. I don't remember a lot of in depth arguments that it was stylistically or technically bad.
Title: Re: Nolan, Christopher - Directors Best Poll
Post by: FLYmeatwad on August 23, 2012, 08:31:42 AM
Yeah, I don't feel like there was that much dissection of Avatar either. Nolan deserves a ton of harsh criticism though.

These movies are fun for about 15 or 20 minutes. Then their relentlessly prosaic nature wins out, and you realized you're stuck with Nolan's incredibly oppressive and punishing love of empty spectacle for 3 hours. And then you get really bored.

So you aren't  rushing out to watch it either? It sounds like great eye candy and my curiosity on that score can wait until it's available to rent.

I get the impression from the trailer and all the chat ( and I haven't cared enough to avoid reading spoilers) that the "love is the greatest thing" driver (is it a theme? Seems like a strong word for it) will be mawkish.

We have strongly different tastes Noff but a fm like this should have both of us running to a cinema. If it can't interest people like us something's really off about it. I have more interest frankly in rewatching The Prestige but I had a poor view of that one. I need to see if everyone else is right or if it's the film that signals the start of the over complicated plot noodling that Nolan has disappeared into. The simplicity of Momento or Insomnia seem like the work of a different director.

Also I saw some suggestion of Nolan adapting Chandler. Perfect match since neither can handle plot exposition worth a damn. It would the most bizarre bowl of spaghetti and as such it might be fun.

It probably would if I took the time to find out more about it (i.e. watched a trailer or something). I'm not starved for things to watch right now though so it's been a while since I really paid any attention to what's coming down the pike.

How about you. What's your process for determining what to watch and when to watch it? How long is your queue and how do you fill it?

I have trouble considering the Dark Knights as being part of Nolan's filmography ; they seem so utterly different from all other movies, not least of all because I actually like them. A year ago I would have answered this poll with no hesitation : The Dark Knight is by far the best Nolan ever made. But now, after Interstellar, it is not quite so clear. TDK still wins, but Interstellar remains a better movie in more than one way.
Anyhoo, here is my top 5 in good Filmspotting fashion :

1. The Dark Knight
2. Interstellar
3. Batman Begins
4. The Prestige
5. The Dark Knight Rises

Before you ask, no, I am clearly not a fan of Nolan and most of his (non-Batman) work.

Both had some really fun set pieces.
I enjoyed elements of both.
But both also tried to cram too much story into the film. TDK made more sense to me but it dragged on far too long for my taste and TDKR had too many threads and never really tied them all together for me. This idea of Gotham being held captive for months while Bane enjoyed free uninterrupted control - I never bought into it. the twist at the end was just tossed in there and never fully established - it seemed like deus ex machina.
So where TDK seemed excessive, TDKR seemed to be sloppy and thrown together.

Despite not loving TDKR and Interstellar, I think Nolan is still capable of interesting things. I wouldn't say his franchise work has made a directly negative impact on his other projects. Interstellar's problems were not its conventional approach or anything else that would be "hacky."

I agree, the problems of Interstellar are absolutely not the same as those of The Dark Knight Rises. And they could not be the same as those of The Dark Knight because it has no problems.

But I could not have agreed with your comment anyway 1SO since I do not believe Nolan was ever one of Hollywood's best anything and two of his most recent movies are his best in my opinion.

I wish there was as much love for FOLLOWING as there is for MEMENTO - it's Nolan at his most restricted budget-wise and that forces him to work within intimate spaces and with lengthy dialogue sequences. Everything else is so operatic in stakes that it makes you forget that he can be an incredible director of intimacy. I hope he surprises us next - if he needs to stay in his genre wheelhouse, fine, but how cool would a classic throwback whodunnit noir from Nolan be? Say he adapted something by Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammet or Agatha Christie? A fan can dream. A romantic melodrama would be cool too, but I know not to expect a big change.

I’m a bigger fan than most, but I’d say Nolan’s work (particularly on the last two films) has been on a downward tragectory toward highly competent cinematic mediocrity ... as I am sure many of his critics would characterize all of his work; but I’ve revisited all of these but one over the last two years, and I would stand by my ratings.
