"Watchmaker Cinema"

A term coined for Memento by the LA Times, it conjures images of Nolan stooped over his films, meticulously screwing together his alternate realities like a big-budget Geppetto. It's an interesting spin on the director's work, although if there's a forensic aspect to Nolan's filmmaking, it's behind-the-scenes. On screen, his currency is bold ideas, mazy psychology and twisty storytelling. "It's like reading a Haruki Murakami novel," Ellen Page mused of Inception, while co-star Cillian Murphy talked "a place the mind goes, [that's] often very dark and always interesting."
