Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk is a $150 million experimental film. The film is new, it’s alive, and it is bound for infamy. To discuss art in any sort of measurable way is to relate that art to your own experience. Our tastes are informed, in part, by what we’ve been through and what we’ve seen. I’m noting that because I have seen thousands upon thousands of movies, and I have never seen a film like Dunkirk. And that sort of fresh vibrancy is enough to make me love a film. Of course, more factors are needed to achieve cinematic greatness, but seeing something I’ve never scene before is inspiring in a way that is all too rare.

It’s a unique, groundbreaking thriller that I have seen dozens of times, and studied endlessly. Nolan’s latest film, Dunkirk, opens today, and before we take a look at the new, I thought it’d be prudent to jump back and examine one of Nolan’s first.

Top 26 Things I Love About The Prestige (that no one talks about)

The Prestige is one of Christopher Nolan’s most polarizing films. True, detractors love to hate on Interstellar and The Dark Knight Rises, but there’s something about The Prestige that sparks divide. I’ve always loved the film, and was happy when dedicated readers of this blog encouraged me to add The Prestige to my No One Talks About blog series. With Nolan’s Dunkirk on the brink of release, I thought it’d be fun to highlight a few things I love about one of Nolan’s most divided films. (Note: All major plot points concerning The Prestige will be revealed in this post.)
