A Christopher Nolan Tribute

Source: YouTube

I'm sure I wasn't the only one a little disappointed that Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) walked away with the Oscar for Best Director at the 83rd Academy Awards instead of David Fincher (The Social Network). However, the more disappointing aspect of the Best Director award was that Christopher Nolan wasn't even nominated for his amazing work on Inception. All of the practical shooting that happened on set without the assistance of visual effects was worth the nomination in itself. Thankfully DJC Productions has paid tribute to Nolan's work in the aptly named Nolanography, a montage looking back at the director's outstanding films.

You can find a longer Chris Nolan tribute here, if you didn't like this one. Inspired by the year-end montage Filmography 2010 which I highlighted late last year, DJC Productions takes clips from Nolan's films and tosses them into a great montage featuring the song Nostrand by Ratatat. Though there's definitely much more of The Dark Knight and Inception than his other films, it is still a great look back at all of Nolan's work in a short, fun package. So enjoy the video, and let's hope Chris Nolan actually gets a Best Director nod sometime soon.

What's your favorite Nolan film?
