Jon?’s review published on Letterboxd:
There’s a lot of people who think this is Nolan’s worst film. He doesn’t have any bad ones, but this is far from the “worst” (I’d put Insomnia and Dunkirk below it). It’s always been a film I really enjoy, though it’s obviously rough in some parts. And, you really see the genesis (or perhaps, inception...ha ha, ha) of a lot of traits he’d become known for.
It’s a sharp film, economic in its 70 minute runtime, and really inspiring as far as no-budget, first films go. Solid acting, and the twists are well-done.
