“You’ve changed things….forever” was a line from The Joker meant for Batman, trying to explain how nothing in Gotham will ever be the same since Batman’s emergence. But this line can easily be applied to the visionary director behind the hugely successful The Dark Knight Trilogy, Christopher Nolan. While helming The Dark Knight Trilogy has really made Christopher Nolan a household name, Nolan has been a trailblazer since his first film;Following was unspooled way back in 1998.

Whether it’s the way he takes what can be considered a “simple story” and turn it on its head by finding a fresh way to tell the story, or the fact that the man didn’t even go to film school and in spite of that, Christopher Nolan is without a doubt one of the most innovative and visionary directors working in Hollywood today.
