“You take it away and you show them what they had.”

For those big fans of Inception, you can see where Christopher Nolan got his start. Following is Nolan’s breakthrough picture. One made with an extremely tight budget of $6,000 over the course of a year. Invoking the aesthetic of low budget 1940’s and 1950’s film noir Following tells the story of a writer named Bill. Bill needs inspiration for his new piece of writing so he takes to following people around London. This quickly becomes an obsession as he follows more and more people. Of course he establishes rules for himself like never follow the same person for too long or never follow a woman into an alley after dark. Nevertheless he breaks his most important rule 10 minutes into the movie. Never follow the same person more than once. (more…)

Brand new contributor Mary Trishman takes a close look at the career evolution of Inception’s Leonardo DiCaprio.

I hated Leonardo DiCaprio when I was little. That was abnormal for a young girl at the time, which is precisely why I decided to hate him. I would draw deformities on his face in my sister’s Teen Beat magazines and make fun of Titanic, which was my sister’s favorite movie and therefore my least favorite. At the age of 12, I saw Titanic in the sticky-floored and now non-existent Hazleton Cinema with my mom and my aunt. To me, the movie was entirely too long and excessively depressing. I still maintain that perception. It made me cry, and my legs fell asleep about halfway through. And it seemed like every single female between the ages of seven and forty were in love with Leo DiCaprio. I, therefore, decided I hated him. (more…)

Christopher Nolan’s Inception is one of the best films I’ve seen this year, mostly because of its unique Matryoshka doll plot structure and the way it blurs the line between dream and reality. I like movies that give me a little credit as a viewer and ask me to bring my brain to the theater instead of leaving it at home. If you want some more mind-twisting films that also dabble in dreamscapes, check these out. In no particular order: (more…)

With this look back at what many consider to be M. Night Shymalan’s finest work, we welcome brand new contributor Justin Wagner!

The noughties; the biggest decade in superhero movie blockbuster history.  While the likes of Sam Raimi and Christopher Nolan were directing rehashes of old comic book favorites, M. Night Shyamalan was creating a new “superhero”.  One who is unlike Tony Stark or Bruce Wayne in that the protagonist David Dunn (Bruce Willis) is not rich, he is not a top scientist, nor does he have a line of women chasing after him.  David Dunn is a just a normal guy; normal except for the fact that he has never been sick.  David realizes this after he is the only survivor in a train wreck killing 131 passengers.  He returns home unscathed to his wife Audrey Dunn (Robin Wright Penn), with whom he is currently going through a dissolving marriage, and his child Joseph Dunn (Spencer Treat Clark).  The train wreck is brought to his attention by art gallery owner Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) who has a romanticism for the characters portrayed in comic books. At this point, David Dunn looks like the perfect candidate for Elijah’s long sought after real life superhero. (more…)

Christopher Nolan, 2010 / “If I'm going to perform Inception, then we need imagination.”

Inception arrived today among a great deal of hype and expectation. Christopher Nolan is the, at least for the average-cinema fan, the biggest name in 2000s film. Hitting the scene with Memento, and then most recently with the rebooting of the Batman franchise, Nolan has done no wrong in his career so far. After pleasing critics, Batman fans and Warner Bros., Nolan decided to take on a more personal, low-budget film as a quick break between the second and third Batman movies. Well, he missed out on the low-budget aspect, but Inception is a Nolan movie, about making a Nolan movie, and it is about as epic as it can get. (more…)
