Nolan Films, Making Him the Most Influential Director of the 21st Century

Christopher Nolan has made a name for himself in the industry. It will not be a lie to say that more than a name, it is a brand in the present times. Although known for his twisted and mind-bending concepts of space-time and other psychological aspects like Dreams, he has also worked on superheroes and War movies and is currently dwelling his mind in a biopic. In a list of Top 100 Fan Favourite movies curated by the social platform Letterboxd, Christopher Nolan dominates with a total of 3 iconic movies among the Top 20.

Christopher Nolan wears the crown of Success

The List revealed by Letterboxd has a number of notable movies in it. It has some of the best movies made. But the view which most of the moviegoers enjoyed was Christopher Nolan dominating the peak position.

Christopher Nolan topped the list with his Interstellar. It is also a very well-deserving candidate as not only the storyline is mind bogging but even the making has been an interesting process. It is said that the director had some real scientists with him to discuss all the brain-twisting stuff related to space and time.

Following the list was The Dark Knight on the 7th as well as Inception on the 12th. The Dark Knight is still helmed as one of the most unique takes on the superhero genre whereas Inception still succeeds in confusing the audience regarding the various layers of dreams. All three movies listed there count not only among the director’s best ones but also the Best of all time.

After the list was revealed by Letterboxd, some fans have even cited Nolan as one of the most influential directors of this century. Even though the last movie by Christopher Nolan, Tenet wasn’t able to achieve the same peak of success, still a large portion of the blame can be given to the pandemic. Moreover, his upcoming project Oppenheimer based on the life of the titular personality has already created quite a buzz.

What is Oppenheimer about?

Christopher Nolan’s upcoming spectacle Oppenheimer will be based on the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer more popularly known as the father of the Atomic bomb. The movie has an ensemble star-studded cast starting from Robert Downey Jr., Cillian Murphy, and Matt Damon to Florence Pugh, Emily Blunt, Rami Malek, and Gary Oldman.

It is the first venture of Christopher Nolan after Memento which isn’t backed by Warner Bros. It is produced under the Universal umbrella following a feud between Nolan and Warner Bros. Although it is Nolan’s first step toward a Biopic, fans don’t expect the usual classic approach. It is no doubt that a Nolan twist can be expected from the movie.

Oppenheimer is set to release on July 23, 2023
