Nolan just repeats the same shit over an over. The most overrated director around.
Ok to put it another way, the concept and the execution were great. The dialogue was practically inaudible in places (at least for me). I went to see it twice and liked it even more on the second viewing. Very few other directors are making blockbusters with a brain. He's not without his faults but I think the hype is justified.
That’s exactly it, hype. It’s utter bollocks.
I remember TDKR havjng 9.2 on IMDB weeks before it was released. The hype has always been over the top since TDK which was so overhyped I could barely believe it when I saw it.
All Christian Bale does is grunt like a prick and I like him on other films.
There has been numerous complaints about the audio in all his films so you’re correct when you say it’s intentional.
It’s baffling that someone who gets so much studio backing can release films where the dialogue is inaudible.
If it’s to get rewatches it’s a flawed concept.
The film is fucked from the first viewing for me and subsequent watches with subs won’t fix first impressions.
The dialogue is bollocks anyway. His films are visual and he relies on Zimmer for much of his success.
Memento was good. An original idea which turns out is the only one he’s ever had.
I’ve said it before to other people. His trick is to make the average film goer to think they’re more intelligent than they actually are.
The average fucker who would never watch anything more than your summer blockbuster before Nolan now thinks they’re super intelligent because Nolan spoon fed details about relativity and spherical worm holes.
I don’t think any of his films are intelligent, far from it.
You’d have to be thick as pig shit to not get it.
