Top Ten Movies Directed by Christopher Nolan

The Top Ten

The Dark Knight The Dark Knight  Product Image

Really a masterpiece.. Never thought a superhero movie could make you think.. Ledger's performance was easily one of the best of all times.. And the climax, only a mastermind like nolan can blame the superhero and get away with it... Can't complain!

Unlike The Avengers, The Dark Knight has a significant meaning behind it. Its about the results of following your own heart and taking the law under your won hands. This movie has proved that Chris Nolan did it all right. When I was watching the movie, I personally loved that movie and not just that, his techniques were proven well in that movie including his camera shot and also the complexing cuts between scenes

The way nolan portrayed all the dynamics of a superhero film, it was remarkable. The core is, when the movie was ready to release, people were thinking that it would be a typical or a very simple superhero film with some dumb music but the way he delivered all the complexity and reality behind each and every scene, that led him towards a gleaming sum up. The best thing in the move and the work of nolan was the origination of Harvey Dent as a evil. Joker's tricks and way of criminality was the heart of film.

Although I'm not a fan of superhero movies, this one definitely deserves the first spot. The Joker is incredibly well acted, and also the ethical problems in the movie are very well made. Only negative thing I can think of is that the plot is a bit messy.

Inception Inception  Product Image

What he has done you can't even think chris nolan is one of the greatest directors and this movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen

He has made a masterpiece that surpasses the Dark Knight. It is an amazing film with a great soundtrack, awesome action and visual effects and an original storyline

the entrance shot itself was mind blowing... and rest of the movie kept on blowing my mind... hans zimmer's background score was a highlight... nolan is genius... the best director iv'e ever seen...

Great movie with original and solid script. Nolan has done something beyond the scope of a normal man. Such genius, took care in each and every detail such the there is not much room for improvement. True masterpiece. DiCaprio's acting and Hans Zimmer's music add to it. Must watch!

Interstellar Interstellar Product Image

Incredible movie. Completely blew me away. The scope of the story is just amazing! Great music and one of the best scenes in the history of cinema (docking scene). The more you think about it, the more you realize that this movie is a true masterpiece. Incredible acting as well. Shows Oscars are completely worthless these days (it only got best Visual Effects, which in my opinion is an insult).

In my opinion the dark knight is the best. But I think interstellar deserves to be number 3. Its really good. Just amazing. And of course the music. Every three days I listen to it. Hans zimmer has done a great job.

In my opinion, this is certainly Nolan's best film and ONE OF THE BEST OF ALL TIME.. Unlike many others, the best I liked about this film is its ending. Superb directing, superb performances and undoubtedly very witty and clever..
Top films of Chris Nolan in my opinion :
1) Interstellar
2) Inception
3) The Dark knight
4) The Prestige
5) Memento
6), The Dark knight rises
7) Insomnia
8) Following

Great movie! In my opinion Nolan's third best.

Memento Memento  Product Image

All of his movies are directed well, but this one was so unique that it's hard to just forget.

Best movie by Nolan. Better than Inception. It is an underrated masterpiece. It is AWESOME

Best movie I have ever watched! Loved it! No idea how someone can pull off a great movie while showing the ending first!

I recently seen some movies of Christopher Nolan and he is just amazing director I don't have words to say how much cerebral he is. It can be say when you watch his movies. I have never seen director like him and I don't to see.There will be no one director in the world in the future who can take his place.

The Dark Knight Rises The Dark Knight Rises Product Image

When I had seen its previous part ie the dark knight, I had thought 'nothing can be better than this". But only a genius like nolan could give us something even better! Without giving a second thought, I can say that the dark knight rises is one of the best movies I have ever seen!

Nolan is a genius... His direction is flawless.. Simply great... Christian bale & tom hardy made the film to a high level...

I have never been more emotionally invested in a comic book movie.

Flawless film

The Dark Knight Rises is a visual spectacle and an epic conclusion to the trilogy.

The Prestige The Prestige  Product Image

Lovely movie... my god... what awesome piece of art... what awesome innovation... such an original script... true to its story, this movie stands out strongly... christopher nolan at his best of efforts... cristian bale rocking... Hugh's too good... awesome, all praises for the movie

Best movie by Nolan! Those who voted his other movies as better than this are either chutias(stupid) or they haven't watched this movie or they have watched but didn't understand. This is also the best thriller movie, twists and turns don't come of nowhere. Every conversation, every sentence in the movie is meaningful. Every action has meaning. Like, if someone has done something, why did they do that, there is always a reason. I think The Prestige and Memento are masterpiece. Other movies of Nolan are good but not great.

The best movie I have ever seen... Most people will never understand the depth of the movie if they only see movies on the surface. Nolan's moat intriguing movie ever. Interstellar is nothing in front of the Prestige

An original story, and great theme. Two magicians going head to head to prove who will amaze the crowd. Have watched all of Nolan's movies and this is definitely my favorite!

Batman Begins Batman Begins  Product Image

It is Darkest of all.

Best origin story, and a compelling story, perfectly done by the best director working today NOLAN

You do know that this is the first movie in Chris Nolan's batman trilogy? The dark knight is not.

For me, the best of Nolan's Batman trilogy.

Insomnia Insomnia  Product Image

Such an amazing movie! Al Pacino, Hilary Swank, and Robin Williams (R.I. P) all put in amazing performances! Very underrated!

This film is so underrated. It does have high ratings, but it is not as famous as it should be!

The best psychological movie ever made. Al Pacino was AWESOME.

It's so underrated

Dunkirk Dunkirk Product Image

A raw, visceral experience which brings you through the terrors of war with a clear vision and a deft script, whisking you between timelines so well that Nolan can maintain both narrative tension and realism with exceptional visuals and a constantly playing, brilliantly conceived soundtrack. Nolan directs Hoyte van Hoytema's excellent camerawork with an unflinching hand, sending us through war with multiple perspectives, lending us hope and understanding of human vulnerability and courage. A tour de force of riveting action, smartly woven together with a very human core, Nolan's Dunkirk is a modern masterpiece and cements his position among the greatest.

I know that Dunkirk just came out very recently, but it still deserves more than tenth on this list. It is, for me, by far the best War film I have ever seen. It really is an experiential film. It doesn't give you cheesy characters with pregnant wives back at home, but instead focuses on an entire battle, a battle that you feel like you are in. It takes three different stories on different timelines and ties them all into the same exact moment. Add in some fantastic direction (obviously) and a masterpiece of a soundtrack and you have one incredible movie.

Best War film I've ever seen

It's Not Even Out Yet But I Have A Feeling That This Will Be Brilliant

Following Following  Product Image

Nolan's filmography is so good that even a movie like Following comes at the last, but I personally think it's better than Insomnia. And you should absolutely give credit for making a movie with almost no budget. So there you go Following.

Solid movie. The ending wasn't enough for me though. I still think this movie is a major accomplishment. Nolan shot the film over a couple of weekends with his friends. That takes effort.

Easily the second position on the list. Just that very few people have watched it and it was his very first movie with low resources. And yet an amazing movie!

Great movie very underrated
