Phil’s Top 5… Christopher Nolan Films

Phil’s Top 5… Christopher Nolan Films

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: On the heels of Dunkirk we look at Christopher Nolan Top 5 Films…

 

Close but no cigar: Insomnia, Memento, The Dark Knight Rises

 

5 – Intersteller
Epic, confusing, pretentious, muddled, genius… you name it, Interstellar’s been called it BUT for every small miss step, this is blockbuster filmmaking at it’s grandest. 

 

4 – Batman Begins
After Batman & Robin killed the franchise dead, Nolan had a mountain to climb.  He did it by grounding Batman in reality and two of the best ever comic book movies was born. 

 

3 – The Prestige
It’s the Nolan film that most forget, but The Prestige is a cracking film and possibly Nolan’s bets in many peoples opinions.

 

2 – Inception
Twisting stories have always been some what of a hall mark of Nolan and here he takes it to a whole new level. Visually stunning and one of the most intelligent blockbusters ever made.

 

1 – The Dark Knight
Simple put one of the best films of the 00’s so far, it’s also the best Batman film and the best Superhero film.  So much more than Heath Ledger’s final film, Nolan knocks it out the park.
