Following (1998)

Directed By – Christopher Nolan

Screenplay By – Christopher Nolan

Cinematography By – Christopher Nolan

Starring Jeremy Theobald

69 min.

Following is a exceptional feature debut. It’s a quick interesting original work self financed by Christopher Nolan and reveals several of the future stud director’s technical pursuits. I consider Following a workshop for Memento, as Following is playing around with story structure in terms of its time and space relationship. The stories aren’t similar but it is how Nolan executes them that the connection is made. Nolan’s time fascination will continue with basically all of his features.

Anyone who enjoys Nolan’s films should check out his first feature as it is both enlightening to see where the director started much of his themes and it is also a good movie with an intriguing story that will have you hooked through its entirety.
