THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
2012, Warner Bros., 165 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Nolan

Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) finds himself up against both relentless evil force Bane (Tom Hardy) and mysterious jewel thief Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) as he is wrenched from retirement by the threatened destruction of all of Gotham City. Christopher Nolan wraps up his Batman trilogy with a satisfying, complex and insanely ambitious meditation on heroism and class that is arguably the greatest comic book film of all time.


INSOMNIA
2002, Warner Bros., 118 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Nolan

Detective Al Pacino heads for Alaska to track serial killer Robin Williams, but the differences between the two men might not be as stark as Pacino would like to admit. Remaking the 1997 Norwegian crime masterpiece, Christopher Nolan infuses the material with his own sensibility to create another of his portraits of deeply driven, deeply flawed and all-too-human heroes.


INTERSTELLAR
2014, Paramount, 169 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Nolan

In the not-too-distant future, life on Earth can no longer sustain itself. It’s up to pilot-turned farmer-turned-astronaut Matthew McConaughey (with an assist from scientist Anne Hathaway) to head into space to look for new worlds to inhabit. Combining family drama with eye-popping visuals and mind-expanding philosophical inquiry, Nolan’s sci-fi epic is one of the few films that not only invites but earns comparison with 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
