A Life in Pictures: Christopher Nolan
Christopher Nolan
Season 7  |  Episode 2  |  Foxtel Arts  |  December 10, 2020

Christopher Nolan's professional career spans 19 years, from 1998's Following to this year's 'Dunkirk'. The journeys undertaken in his films, however, are rarely so linear. A second can last the blink of an eye or it can slow down, freezing time. For a man with no memory, years can collapse into half-forgotten fragments, while what passes for one hour on a distant planet is years on another. From Victorian magic shows and the battle for Gotham to the multiple perspectives of armed conflict, time is elastic in a Christopher Nolan film and the experience of watching one is never less than riveting.
