Nolan is a relatively new director on the block, exploding onto the scene with the inventive Memento. His intelligent direction is refreshing and he tells a story beautifully.
Nolan was born in London in 1970 and began making films at the age of seven with his father´s super 8mm camera. He studied English literature at University College London and made some shorts with the film society while there.
After the incredible success of Memento Nolan worked with Pacino on a remake of Insomnia before moving onto the Batman franchise. His brother Jonathon is a writer penning the short story which Memento is based on and Nolan´s latest undertaking The Exec. With few films to date Nolan is one to watch and judging by the quality of his efforts so far we can expect greatness.
