His best films in order:
The Dark Knight
Seriously, Memento is such a brilliant film. If you haven't seen it yet, go out and buy the DVD.
Memento is one of the most interesting films I have ever seen. Christopher Nolan is BY FAR the best director who is still making films. The Dark Knight and Inception were good as well.
His films aren't about the actors, they are about making you exit the theater with complex emotions and perhaps a question or two about the purpose of filmmaking. - minimac93
