    Birds, Orphans and Fools


    A weird but interesting mix between Jules and Jim and Daisies (obvious references but still).

    It has the love triangle and the sweet exuberance of the former's first act, and the stylish originality of the latter.

    This is clearly a product of Nolan's position as someone with both symbolic capital and commercial success. Sure it's the reason filmbros revere him, but he's still one of the few directors working today to achieve that…
