Christopher Nolan

Christopher Nolan

The only job that was ever of interest to me other than filmmaking is architecture.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm taking a bit of a wait-and-see attitude towards 3D.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I have been interested in dreams, really since I was a kid. I have always been fascinated by the idea that your mind, when you are asleep, can create a world in a dream and you are perceiving it as though it really existed.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I've been interested in dreams since I as a kid and I've wanted to do a film about them for a long time.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
But I have been interested in dreams, really since I was a kid. I have always been fascinated by the idea that your mind, when you are asleep, can create a world in a dream and you are perceiving it as though it really existed.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
But in the back of my mind I've always looked to the biggest-scale Hollywood movies. Because to me the most satisfying experience is of watching a movie, if it's done really well. And so that aspiration is always it for me, if I have the opportunity to do it.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Yeah, it's odd when you look back at your own work. Some filmmakers don't look back at their work at all. I look at my work a lot, actually. I feel like I learned something while looking at stuff I've done in terms of what I'm going to do in the future, mistakes I've made and things at work or what have you.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
We all wake up in the morning wanting to live our lives the way we know we should. But we usually don't, in small ways. That's what makes a character like Batman so fascinating. He plays out our conflicts on a much larger scale.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I think there's a vague sense out there that movies are becoming more and more unreal. I know I've felt it.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I've always been a movie guy, movies have been my thing. I love movies, all kinds of movies.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
You know when Hollywood does a great big blockbuster that really wraps you up in a world, and lets you believe in extraordinary things that move you in some way, in an almost operatic sensibility? That to me is the most fun I have at the movies.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
To be honest, I don't enjoy watching movies much when I'm working. They tend to fall apart on me a bit.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The term 'genre' eventually becomes pejorative because you're referring to something that's so codified and ritualised that it ceases to have the power and meaning it had when it first started.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I don't particularly enjoy watching films in 3D because I think that a well-shot and well-projected film has a very three-dimensional quality to it, so I'm somewhat sceptical of the technology.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
But, in each case, as a filmmaker who's been given sizable budgets with which to work, I feel a responsibility to the audience to be shooting with the absolute highest quality technology that I can and make the film in a way that I want.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
For the last 10 years, I've felt increasing pressure to stop shooting film and start shooting video, but I've never understood why. It's cheaper to work on film, it's far better looking, it's the technology that's been known and understood for a hundred years, and it's extremely reliable.More Christopher Nolan [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm taking a bit of a wait-and-see attitude towards 3D.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The problem with big films is they snowball very rapidly and you can never pull back. It's a pipeline that needs to be fed.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be honest, I don't enjoy watching movies much when I'm working. They tend to fall apart on me a bit.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I look at a digitally acquired and projected image, it looks inferior against an original negative anamorphic print or an IMAX one.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I never meet anybody who actually likes the format, and it’s always a source of great concern to me when you’re charging a higher price for something that nobody seems to really say they have any great love for.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think audiences get too comfortable and familiar in today's movies. They believe everything they're hearing and seeing. I like to shake that up.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For me, Batman is the one that can most clearly be taken seriously. He's not from another planet, or filled with radioactive gunk. I mean, Superman is essentially a god, but Batman is more like Hercules: he's a human being, very flawed, and bridges the divide.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Batman and Superman are very different characters but they're both iconic and elemental. Finding the right story for them both is the key.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have been interested in dreams, really since I was a kid. I have always been fascinated by the idea that your mind, when you are asleep, can create a world in a dream and you are perceiving it as though it really existed.More Christopher Nolan [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
