Famous quotes by Christopher Nolan
But I have been interested in dreams, really since I was a kid. I have always been fascinated by the idea that your mind, when you are asleep, can create a world in a dream and you are perceiving it as though it really existed.Christopher Nolan
But in the back of my mind I've always looked to the biggest-scale Hollywood movies. Because to me the most satisfying experience is of watching a movie, if it's done really well. And so that aspiration is always it for me, if I have the opportunity to do it.Christopher Nolan
But, in each case, as a filmmaker who's been given sizable budgets with which to work, I feel a responsibility to the audience to be shooting with the absolute highest quality technology that I can and make the film in a way that I want.Christopher Nolan
For the last 10 years, I've felt increasing pressure to stop shooting film and start shooting video, but I've never understood why. It's cheaper to work on film, it's far better looking, it's the technology that's been known and understood for a hundred years, and it's extremely reliable.Christopher Nolan
I don't particularly enjoy watching films in 3D because I think that a well-shot and well-projected film has a very three-dimensional quality to it, so I'm somewhat sceptical of the technology.Christopher Nolan
I have been interested in dreams, really since I was a kid. I have always been fascinated by the idea that your mind, when you are asleep, can create a world in a dream and you are perceiving it as though it really existed.Christopher Nolan
I think there's a vague sense out there that movies are becoming more and more unreal. I know I've felt it.Christopher Nolan
I'm taking a bit of a wait-and-see attitude towards 3D.Christopher Nolan
I've always been a movie guy, movies have been my thing. I love movies, all kinds of movies.Christopher Nolan
I've been interested in dreams since I as a kid and I've wanted to do a film about them for a long time.Christopher Nolan
The only job that was ever of interest to me other than filmmaking is architecture.Christopher Nolan
The term 'genre' eventually becomes pejorative because you're referring to something that's so codified and ritualised that it ceases to have the power and meaning it had when it first started.Christopher Nolan
To be honest, I don't enjoy watching movies much when I'm working. They tend to fall apart on me a bit.Christopher Nolan
We all wake up in the morning wanting to live our lives the way we know we should. But we usually don't, in small ways. That's what makes a character like Batman so fascinating. He plays out our conflicts on a much larger scale.Christopher Nolan
Yeah, it's odd when you look back at your own work. Some filmmakers don't look back at their work at all. I look at my work a lot, actually. I feel like I learned something while looking at stuff I've done in terms of what I'm going to do in the future, mistakes I've made and things at work or what have you.Christopher Nolan
You know when Hollywood does a great big blockbuster that really wraps you up in a world, and lets you believe in extraordinary things that move you in some way, in an almost operatic sensibility? That to me is the most fun I have at the movies.Christopher Nolan
