Independent & foreign film aficionado, Pilsner lover and Rocket League troll. I’m a big fan of the work of directors like Wim Wenders and Wes Anderson, and a sucker for pretty cinematography. Will take an isometric, turn-based tactical RPG over an FPS any day of the week.

Zavvi’s A To Z Of Directors | Christopher Nolan

The Dark Knight of cinema, Christopher Nolan is one of the most popular and influential directors of his time. His work has been as ‘intensely embraced, analysed and debated by ordinary film fans as by critics and film academics’ and is possibly the closest you can come to the oxymoron ‘an art-house blockbuster’.
