NOLAN RANKED

Ready for a series of hot takes? Here you are...

The ranking of Nolan's filmography after my last rewatch of his oeuvre.

I have noticed that whenever a Nolan film connects with me, it is because of how emotionally engaged I was. As such, I found Inception impressive because of how it combined blockbuster and complex ideas, but I was disappointed in the artificial emotionality beneath.

On the other hand, Memento and Interstellar engage me ever so much on a purely sentimental level while also being utterly demanding in different aspects of their narrative and technical construction.

Dunkirk lives and breaths on Nolan's newfound ability to convey heartfelt emotion without being bound to a character. Here, the feeling and fervor…
