Christopher Edward Nolan CBE (/ˈnoʊlən/; born 30 July 1970) is a British-American filmmaker known for making personal, distinctive films within the Hollywood mainstream. His directorial efforts have grossed more than US$4.7 billion in theatres worldwide and garnered a total of 34 Oscar nominations and ten wins.
His films like Dunkirk are considered the best movies of all time.
Also The Dark Knight is considered to be one of the best superhero movies of all time, if not the best of all time.
His films have amazing cinematography.
His films have great editing.
He is one of the few directors who mostly makes original films.
He is one of the few directors who promoted the use of high-resolution visual effects, with resolutions up to 8K.
He said that what he wants is for the audience to relate to Batman "whether they are Republican or Democrat" whilst talking about The Dark Knight and its politics.
His short films Doodlebug and Quay was well-received.
None of the movies have negative reviews, which is all films have best reviews.
He absolutely hates deleted scenes and lets them get lost during editing because he feels that if they are deleted, there's no need to see them, despite that some of his fans would like to see them out of curiosity.
While done out of respect to Heath Ledger, he didn't include not even a single reference to the Joker in The Dark Knight Rises, which led to some complaints from fans who felt disrespectful not even mentioning the most memorable villain of his The Dark Knight Trilogy in the grand finale.
He has criticized Warner Bros. for their plans to simultaneously release their upcoming tentpole films in theaters and HBO Max due to the most theaters being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. While he does have a point because the filmmakers did such movies to be watched at theaters, a television release benefits viewers whose countries still don't have their theaters operational and it would be unfair to prevent them from seeing the movies without being spoiled.
He was critical of 3D films and dislikes that 3D cameras cannot be equipped with prime (non-zoom) lenses. This could explain why The Dark Knight Rises was the only superhero film in 2012 to not get a 3D release, even when other superhero films released in the same year like The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man did.
