The Z To A Of Christopher Nolan | Cobb

Cobb

Like a little tray of Easter Eggs, Nolan's debut film Following foreshadows bigger things to come. There's the little Batman sign on the door of Jeremy Theobald's bedroom ("I put it up in 1989 when I moved there," explains the actor, "there was a film called Batman that year") and, less of a coincidence but equally noteworthy, there's the name of Alex Haw's character: Cobb, a surname shared with Leonardo DiCaprio's dream thief in Inception. Aside from being considerably less smooth, Haw's version goes without a first name. DiCaprio's is Dominick. Both are thieves. Dominick wins because he stole his name too.
