Christopher Nolan Biography

Christopher Nolan is best known as a Director. British-American director, screenwriter, and producer who first received acclaim for his 2000 indie suspense thriller Memento. He then shifted from art-house films to blockbusters with the box office hits The Dark Knight, Inception, and Interstellar. Christopher Nolan was born on July 30, 1970 in London, England. He personally funded his directorial debut, Following, and used his friends as actors. With a minuscule budget, he was forced to rehearse with his actors extensively in order to preserve film stock for the entire feature. Christopher Nolan is one of the most successful Director. He has ranked on the list of famous people who were born on July 30, 1970.

Christopher Edward Nolan CBE (/ˈ n oʊ l ə n / ; born 30 July 1970) is a British-American filmmaker known for making personal, distinctive films within the Hollywood mainstream. His films have grossed more than US$4.7 billion worldwide and garnered a total of 34 Oscar nominations and ten wins.

After Insomnia, Nolan planned a Howard Hughes biographical film starring Jim Carrey. He wrote a screenplay, which he said was “the best script I’ve ever written”, but when he learned that Martin Scorsese was making a Hughes biopic (2004’s The Aviator), he reluctantly tabled his script and moved on to other projects. After turning down an offer to direct the historical epic Troy (2004), Nolan worked on adapting Ruth Rendell’s crime novel The Keys to the Street into a screenplay that he planned to direct for Fox Searchlight Pictures, but eventually left the project, citing the similarities to his previous films. Nolan was also adapting a film version of The Prisoner, but later dropped out of the project.

He also has a position among the list of Most popular Director. Christopher is 1 of the famous people in our database with the age of 49 years old.

Family: Parents, Children & Relatives

After earning his bachelor’s degree in English literature in 1993, Nolan worked as a script reader, camera operator, and director of corporate videos and industrial films. In 1995, he began work on the short film Larceny, which was filmed over a weekend in black and white with limited equipment and a small cast and crew. Funded by Nolan and shot with the society’s equipment, it appeared at the Cambridge Film Festival in 1996 and is considered one of UCL’s best shorts. He filmed a third short, Doodlebug (1997), about a man chasing an insect around a flat with a shoe, only to discover when killing it that it is a miniature of himself. Nolan and Thomas made their first attempt at a feature in the mid-90s, an “arty” student angst film called Larry Mahoney, which was scrapped and never released. During this period in his career, Nolan had little or no success getting his projects off the ground; he later recalled the “stack of rejection letters” that greeted his early forays into making films, adding “there’s a very limited pool of finance in the UK. To be honest, it’s a very clubby kind of place … Never had any support whatsoever from the British film industry.”

In early 2003, Nolan approached Warner Bros. with the idea of making a new Batman film. Fascinated by the character and story, he wanted to make a film grounded in a “relatable” world more reminiscent of a classical drama than a comic-book fantasy. Filming took place in 2004, and Nolan relied heavily on traditional stunts and miniature effects, with computer-generated imagery being used in a minimal capacity. Batman Begins, the biggest project Nolan had undertaken to that point, premiered in June 2005 to critical acclaim and commercial success. Starring Christian Bale in the title role, along with Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Liam Neeson, the film revived the franchise, heralding a trend towards darker films that rebooted (or retold) backstories. Praised for its psychological depth and contemporary relevance, Kyle Smith of The New York Post called it “a wake-up call to the people who keep giving us cute capers about men in tights. It wipes the smirk off the face of the superhero movie.” Batman Begins was the eighth-highest-grossing film of 2005 in the United States and the year’s ninth-highest-grossing film worldwide. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Cinematography and three BAFTA awards. On the film’s 10th anniversary, Forbes published an article describing its lasting influence: “Reboot became part of our modern vocabulary, and superhero origin stories became increasingly en vogue for the genre. The phrase “dark and gritty” likewise joined the cinematic lexicon, influencing our perception of different approaches to storytelling not only in the comic book film genre but in all sorts of other genres as well.”

Nolan prefers not to use a mobile phone or an email address, saying, “It’s not that I’m a Luddite and don’t like technology; I’ve just never been interested … When I moved to Los Angeles in 1997, nobody really had cell phones, and I just never went down that path.” He also prohibits use of phones on set.

In 1998, Nolan released his first feature, Following. He wrote, directed, photographed and edited the film, which depicts an unemployed young writer (Jeremy Theobald) who trails strangers through London, hoping they will provide material for his first novel, but is drawn into a criminal underworld when he fails to keep his distance. The film was inspired by Nolan’s experience of living in London and having his apartment burgled: “There is an interesting connection between a stranger going through your possessions and the concept of following people at random through a crowd – both take you beyond the boundaries of ordinary social relations”. Co-produced by Nolan with Emma Thomas and Jeremy Theobald, it was funded by him and made on a modest budget of £3,000. Most of the cast and crew were Nolan’s friends, and shooting took place on weekends over the course of a year. To conserve film stock, each scene in the film was rehearsed extensively to ensure that the first or second take could be used in the final edit. Following won several awards during its festival run and was well received by critics; The New Yorker wrote that it “echoed Hitchcock classics”, but was “leaner and meaner”. Janet Maslin of The New York Times was impressed with its “spare look” and agile hand-held camerawork, saying, “As a result, the actors convincingly carry off the before, during and after modes that the film eventually, and artfully, weaves together.” On 11 December 2012 it was released on DVD and Blu-ray as part of The Criterion Collection.

Born and raised in London, Nolan developed an interest in filmmaking from a young age. After studying English literature at University College London, he made his feature debut with Following (1998). Nolan gained international recognition with his second film, Memento (2000), for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. He transitioned from independent to studio filmmaking with Insomnia (2002), and found further critical and commercial success with The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005–2012), The Prestige (2006), and Inception (2010), which received eight Oscar nominations, including for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. This was followed by Interstellar (2014) and Dunkirk (2017), the latter of which earned him Academy Award nominations for Best Picture and Best Director.

Following’ s success led to Nolan being afforded the opportunity to make Memento (2000), which became his breakthrough film. The synopsis came from his brother Jonathan, who pitched the idea to Nolan during a road trip about a man with anterograde amnesia who uses notes and tattoos to hunt for his wife’s murderer. Jonathan worked the idea into a short story, “Memento Mori” (2001), while Nolan developed it into a screenplay that told the story in reverse. Aaron Ryder, an executive for Newmarket Films, said it was “perhaps the most innovative script I had ever seen”. The film was optioned and given a budget of $4.5 million, with Guy Pearce and Carrie-Anne Moss in the starring roles. Memento premiered at the Venice International Film Festival in September 2000 to critical acclaim. Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal wrote in his review, “I can’t remember when a movie has seemed so clever, strangely affecting and slyly funny at the very same time.” Basil Smith, in the book The Philosophy of Neo-Noir, draws a comparison with John Locke’s An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, which argues that conscious memories constitute our identities, a theme that Nolan explores in the film. The film was a box-office success and received a number of accolades, including Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations for its screenplay, Independent Spirit Awards for Best Director and Best Screenplay, and a Directors Guild of America (DGA) Award nomination. Memento was considered by numerous critics to be one of the best films of the 2000s. In 2017, the film was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry, being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

Nolan was born in Westminster, London, and grew up in Highgate. His father, Brendan James Nolan, was a British advertising executive who worked as a creative director. His mother, Christina (née Jensen), was an American flight attendant who would later work as an English teacher. Nolan’s childhood was split between London and Evanston, Illinois, and he has both British and US citizenship. He has an older brother, Matthew Francis Nolan, a convicted criminal, and a younger brother, Jonathan. Growing up, Nolan was particularly influenced by the work of Ridley Scott, and the science fiction films 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and Star Wars (1977). He began making films at age seven, borrowing his father’s Super 8 camera and shooting short films with his action figures. These films included a stop motion animation homage to Star Wars called Space Wars. He cast his brother Jonathan and built sets from “clay, flour, egg boxes and toilet rolls.” His uncle, who worked at NASA building guidance systems for the Apollo rockets, sent him some launch footage: “I re-filmed them off the screen and cut them in, thinking no-one would notice,” Nolan later remarked. From the age of eleven, he aspired to be a professional filmmaker. In his teenage years, Nolan started making films with Adrien and Roko Belic. Nolan and Roko co–directed the surreal 8 mm Tarantella (1989), which was shown on Image Union, an independent film and video showcase on the Public Broadcasting Service.

Impressed by his work on Memento, Steven Soderbergh recruited Nolan to direct the psychological thriller Insomnia (2002), starring Academy Award winners Al Pacino, Robin Williams, and Hilary Swank. Warner Bros. initially wanted a more seasoned director, but Soderbergh and his Section Eight Productions fought for Nolan, as well as his choice of cinematographer (Wally Pfister) and editor (Dody Dorn). With a $46 million budget, it was described as “a much more conventional Hollywood film than anything [Nolan had] done before”. A remake of the 1997 Norwegian film of the same name, Insomnia is about two Los Angeles detectives sent to a northern Alaskan town to investigate the murder of a local teenager. It received positive reviews from critics and performed well at the box office, earning $113 million worldwide. Film critic Roger Ebert praised the film for introducing new perspectives and ideas on the issues of morality and guilt, stating that “Unlike most remakes, the Nolan Insomnia is not a pale retread, but a re-examination of the material, like a new production of a good play.” Erik Skjoldbjærg, the director of the original film, was satisfied with Nolan’s version, calling it a “well crafted, smart film … with a really good director handling it”. Richard Schickel of Time deemed Insomnia a “worthy successor” to Memento, and “a triumph of atmosphere over a none-too-mysterious mystery”.
