Following ★★★½

A wonderful piece of neo-noir. Nolan shows some skill in his debut. The story is simple: random happenstance that causes the main character's life to spiral out of control. The fractured screenplay that he used so brilliantly in Memento was put to good use here and probably served as a playing ground for that film; works quite brilliantly with the climax. The acting is adequate and plays into the feel of the film well. The music accentuates the film; quite subtle, but the main theme adds some nice intensity. Nolan shows attention to detail with his photography.
