I liked Moon (2009 i think) - low budget sci-fi , sam rockwell & kevin spacey
I'm not talking about writing, I'm talking about directing.
I think ur problem must be with the substance of Nolan's films, because from a directing point of view, he is without doubt one of the best. You can not look at a film like 'Inception' and not think that it's at the very least, a display of awesome directing ability.
directed by the son of David Bowie - fun fact
I haven't seen Inception, but really, did you read the article I linked to? Did you not see The Dark Knight? Seriously, good cinematography is about more than darkening the frame, and good directing is about far more than reliance on shot/counter-shot, and endless exposition.
One of the best, jesus...
ok, he's not one of the best, nontheless, he's still good.
The Dark Knight was a bit 'baggy' and drawn out but it certainly was not awful. WWhy do you hate Nolan so much? i think that article you mentioned has corrupted your mind. And don't you at least think that he is one of the only directors who has 'dared' to make a huge blockbusters which actually requires it's audeience to use their brains a bit.
Wait, the juvenile good vs evil, war-on-terror-saturated mindset of The Dark Knight requires the audience to think? And like the writer of that piece (which confirmed and expanded upon already-existing conceptions of mine, for the record, so the charge of 'corruption' is a false one) points out, he goes to great lengths to ensure that each piece of remotely complicated information is explained, and then repeats those lengths. God, the more I think about him, the less I like him. Those whispered Guy Pearce monologues in Memento, ewww.
By the way, here's a parody trailer which shows how easy the Nolan style is to achieve:
I really enjoyed Stranger than Fiction.
Can anyone recommend a movie about a nuclear disaster (end of the world and starting over) sort of a movie? Thanks in advance.
Does a book count? The Gate to Women's Country by Tepper.
Oh, The Road was a good movie that takes place after a nuclear event.
Yes; MST2K: Warrior of the Lost World
Or you could just actually watch Mad Max.
Sorry but no, reading is fine but a movie is what I am looking for, but thanks.
"Panic in year zero!"(1962) Ray Milland is excellent.
"The day after"(1983) Made-for-TV movie. I liked it.
"Dr. Strangelove"(1964) Actually is "the greatest war satire"!
Thank you and you and corrijean are the best!!
Well, thank you! I should talk about nuclear holocaust films more often!
My only problem with Dr. Strangelove is that I've only seen it once.
Stalag 17 - good.
Loved William Holden and the story! The two comic reliefs? You know who I'm talking about. One was named "Animal" I believe. I don't remember the other person's name, but, they were the only flaws, for me, in the film
The comical character that played off
Just stay away from The Postman, a waste of celluloid.
