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.
