What fascinates me the most is to see how extremely aggressive both his fans and his haters are
Irony: Most loved the guy until "The Dark Knight" made him totally famous, even though it and "Rises" remain his two most accomplished films to date, and stand head-and-shoulders above anything else he's ever touched. The poor, contrived female characters, the lack of palpable emotionality, the all-too-calculated plots, set-ups and show-downs, and most of all, the unbearably cloying expository dialogue were issues that more frequently plagued cult-classics like "Memento," but nobody cared then. Now, he's a piñata for nearly everyone who thinks they know movies. Nolan is flawed, sometimes frustrating, and yes, I strongly dislike some of his films, but he's far from talentless, and even farther from the worst there is. There are butthurt trolls yelling often profane and substance-free insults from either side of the man, and as such he's becoming an increasingly difficult director to subjectively evaluate. That, by the way, is a little sad.
