Does it even matter if he never makes a British film? No.


What about The Following?

Isn't The Dark Knight trilogy/Inception considered a US/UK co-production? Syncopy Films is based in Britian.

And?

If Saving Private Ryan was made by a UK company that would make it a US/UK film?

Not really, it would be a British film because no USA companies were involved. If companies from both countries were involved in the making or financing of thing, the maybe, it could be considered both US and UK. Ex: Harry Potter.

The film company has no effect on determining the nationality of a film. If Ukraine financed Saving Private Ryan it would still be a US film. It's directed, written, stars and is set in America.
That's more of a factor than who gave the money to finance it.

Your argument falls down itself even more with the rest of your statement. If a nationality of a film is decided by who directs it - Nolan is British, who writes it - Nolan is British, who stars in it - Bale, Hardy, Oldman and Caine are all British, Cotillard is French. So you have Freeman, JGL and Hathaway and setting for America. By the logic you're using it's more British than American.

And that's why Shame and We Need to Talk About Kevin are considered US films (fitting some of your definitions from which nation a movie should be considered to be) while Green Street Hooligans and Coppola's Dracula only a British one...oh no wait, they aren't.

You do realize there are a number of UK actors, crew and writers in TDKR right? So even by your definition, it would be a joint UK/USA production.

Also, what do you mean by setting? The Devil's Double has American actors, European financiers and it is set completely in Iraq with a few scenes in Malta.

And, and very few scenes are set in the USA in Saving Private Ryan. Believe or not, that was Europe.

'Batman' is an American character and story. It's even set in America. It will always be American regardless of the people involved in the film.

So now it's got nothing to do with who directed it, wrote it or stars in it?

I feel like mentioning a certain film but I don't want to offend an ally.

The character, creator, setting, accents, crew and actors vs director, writer and actors.

It comes down to which side has more factors.

Which makes TDKR a joint production. Case closed. It's more American surely (especially with those American flags flying around and the stadium scene), but a British element is there to give the UK factor some credit.

So is Never Let Me Go a joint production because the director is American?

But Never Let Me Go is considered a joint project, not only for the director but also because of Fox Searchlight, who had a big hand in releasing and financing it.

Doesn't it use the same cultural test as the relevant film bodies to determine a film's national status? Or is that too simple/sensible.

I've always thought that the nationality of a film should be determined by the country in which the studio (or studios) which have financed it and which release it are based. Or is that just too blindingly obvious?

Christopher Nolan's films are dark, moody, and hence boring as hell. I'm exaggerating of course, but you get the drift. Where's the fun?

The thread sems to have veered somewhat off topic, so in terms of the original question, NO. Definitely not.

The only British film he's ever made and will ever make is The Following. Which is bad for even a student film.
