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


Come on now, don't be silly. It may not be the best film ever made but I think any student would be proud to have made something like that, especially back in the 90s.

This thread boils down to one question and one question only:

Is The Following enough to consider someone one of Britains best directors?

Answer: No.

Thread: End.

And I would agree. I was just saying it's not so bad that a student wouldn't be proud of it.

The Following was his debut film through, as far as debuts go that is pretty damn good, and besides he has gone to better things since so that film was the just the start of that.

Wait... Why does it matter that Nolan's films aren't made in Britain? He's British, that is what matters.

You do realize that eventually every great director from any country will end up making films in the US, right?

Are you saying that Danny Boyle is not "one of Britain's best directors", because he's making films outside of Great Britain?

So Chris Nolan himself is a joint production?

OT: I think he's a damn fine director who's made some of my favourites, so yes.

By the criteria you yourself applied to the Batman films (specifically the setting and nationality of the characters/creator) The Prestige is as british as The Dark Knight is american.

Predominantly British though. His father is British, he was born in Britain and he was educated in Britain.

So he's British and he's a director which makes him a British director and nothing you say to the contrary has any relevance. Considering you don't have a clue what you're talking about I can't believe we're on page 6 of this topic and you still feel you have something to contribute.

'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.


I'm not even gonna bother replacing the words 'Batman' and 'american' for 'The Prestige' and 'british' (for a start it would be grammatically incorrect) but you get the idea.

All of his films except for Sunshine and 127 Hours are British. Slumdog is British-Indian.

So yes, Danny Boyle and Shane Meadows would be contenders. Because they've made more than one British film. Something which Chris Nolan hasn't.

I should add btw, that I'm a big Nolan fan and don't care about the nationality of his films. My point is only for the purpose of this thread subject.

No it doesn't, as they are a pretty integral of making the film. It is a British company, set in London. Not American. All his films, or at least almost all, are an American-British production and not just British. Are you an intentional idiot?

Now stop wasting people's time.

It isn't, it's just British. Dredd was British and Indian (and also American) collab, but no Indian companies were largely involved in the making of Slumdog, being simply set in India makes it as about as Indian as The Kite Runner is simply Afghani.

Companies have no effect on the nationality of a film!

If Zimbabwe funded Lincoln that wouldn't make it a American-Zimbabwe film.

THEN WHAT DOES YOU FUCKING MORON

France financed A Screaming Man, a film set in Chad and about Chad which was also made with some Chadian money. It's still considered partially French. Are you honestly saying Senna is a Brazilian documentary or The Kite Runner an Afghani film? Cause you're stupid if you say so.

As many have pointed out there are many different factors which say what nationality a film is which is why you have so many co-productions now. The point is Nolan is british and is a bloody good filmmaker who has made a name for himself thats enough for me.
