Christopher Nolan's Best Movie ?

Saw this debate on Screen Junkies youtube channel. The did it in a bracket challenge with seedings. Just a refresher here is the list.

Interstellar 2014
The Dark Knight Rises 2012
Inception 2010
The Dark Knight 2008
The Prestige 2006
Batman Begins 2005
Insomnia 2002
Memento 2000
Following 1998

My favorite is The Prestige. In fact it is my favorite movie of all time. Not gonna put any spoilers in my description, but I love how the whole movie follows the script of Michael Caine's opening lines. The casting is great. Scarlet Johannson is OK, but the icing on the cake is David friggin' Bowie as Nicola Tesla. Nice to see Andy Serkis as a human too.

The Dark Knight did end up winning the screen junkies bracket over Inception (did not include Interstellar). Heath Ledger's performance really cements that movie in his legacy. Probably #2 in my list.

Inception is the one I find most visually creative, although the obnoxious exposition brings it down slightly.

Memento is probably the most entertaining film he's made from a narrative perspective. Great acting too. It's just a lot of fun to watch.

Yes, a virgin. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself then report back. Don't read anything about it or look for spoilers.

The snow fortress action chases went on too long. The hotel spinning hallway is iconic though. One of the best action sequences in movie history, made all the better by the fact it was filmed in a rotating tube without CGI.

I'm guessing your least favorite Nolan character is Lucius Fox?

Memento > The Dark Knight> Batman Begins> Insomnia > Following > The Dark Knight Rises > Inception

Haven't seen The Prestige or the new one. If he had never made those Batman films, fanboys wouldn't give a shit about the guy, but he's talented nonetheless.

Dark Knight. Great script and the amazing performance from Ledger seal it.

Prestige follows closely, with Inception 3rd.
Memento.
Batman Begins, a good reboot of the comic book movies.

Insomnia, a remake but interesting to see R. Williams as a villain.

The Dark Knight Rises, definitely last.

Following, didn't see it.

Interstellar, a little early to call.

Christopher Nolan's Best Movie ?

Dark Knight all day. One of the best movies that mankind has had the privilege of watching.
Dialogue is just phenomenal, amongst the best I've ever seen in a film.
Acting is also incredible. We could go on and on not just about how Ledger was, but also Oldman and Bale. Only problem with this film is I am not a fan of Maggie Ghylenhall. Kinda brings it down for me, but the rest of the cast more than makes up for it.
Action scenes are perfect. Perfect blend of intensity, psychological delusion, and acting.
This movie continues to blow me away every time I watch it and is Definitely in my top 5 favorite movies of all time; maybe even #1.

But yeah, Rises and Begins are also great and I could go on and on about those two. But The Prestige would be very close with those 3. Haven't seen it in a while, but absolutely brilliant plot and acting. Really had me wondering what was going to happens next. The ending was awesome.
