  3. Slappy McGee's rating of the film Following

    It doesn't blow you out of your seat, but it certainly displays a lot of talent to come. Some great storytelling mixed with smart camerawork. The movie plays a little like a Hitchcock film. Actually, that's all I could think of while I was watching it. Yeah, I could definitely pick out a lot of Hitchcockian influences in this one. It's not a masterpiece by any stretch, but a solid first film indeed.

  4. Nick Potter's rating of the film Following

    A remarkable sign of things to come, Nolan's debut still holds up as a fascinating piece of editing and nonlinear storytelling on such a tight budget.

  5. turnerBroadcast p3Dr0's rating of the film Following

    This film, almost as much as any other - remains in memory. A haunting thriller that leads the viewer down a path of crime, deception, and betrayal. An urban nightmare that begins with simple actions, stripped from their chronologicial order - .." our eyes pass over the crowd, and if we let them settle on a person, then that person becomes an individual ", carries us to the edge by way of crime and a cool blonde.

  6. David R Williams's rating of the film Following

    An amazingly well crafted addition to the neo-noir canon.

  7. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film Following

  8. kailienicolereece's rating of the film Following

    This film is an artful story full of appropriately devious twists and turns which delve into the combined individual and general populations obsession with both privacy and our equally voracious need for exposure; topped off by an ending that leaves the viewer with the anxious feeling that this could happen to them.

  9. Matthew Almont's rating of the film Following

    A clever and visually assured debut from a master of contemporary thrillers.

  10. David Perez's rating of the film Following

    Impeccable. Tightly written script. All narrative leads are connected tightly to the plot. The time sequencing of the narrative is non-linear, yet excruciatingly precise so as to avoid any plot holes. Fucking fantastic.

  11. angeldromero's rating of the film Following

    Impressive for its budget (only 6 thousand dollars), loved every character and the non-straight-forward editing style. Nolan's debut set the bar high for a generation on how to start your filmography even when encountered with all the limitations possible in your way. Bravo!

  13. aurkihnowe's rating of the film Following

    This film (along with Memento and Insomnia) shows Nolan could've been generation X/Y/Z's Hitchcock, if he hadn't morphed into a deeper Spielberg/Lucas...playing with Tarentino's pop use of the chronological headf*ck, he crafts a semi-classic slice of nihilism and noir out of a low, low budget...watch who you're watching! Bonus: check out the Batman emblem on the door late in the movie...portent of things to come...

  15. JoãoMoura's rating of the film Following

    Nolan is a genius since the first movie, amazing.

  16. Erik F.'s rating of the film Following

    3.5 stars. Fiendishly clever. All the details "snap" together nicely by the end.

  17. Rothaarige's rating of the film Following

  18. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Following

    Even as he got launched to IMDb idolatry, Nolan has always been best as a sleight-of-hand artist. The philosophy of his films is either simple or muddled, but ask him to play with structure or aesthetics—and think only just hard enough—and he can hit close to home. This truly inspired $5,000 debut is still emblematic of his skills, a rewiring of classic noir to that late-90s trend where reality itself was in doubt.

  19. Louis Léonard's rating of the film Following

  20. Ethan's rating of the film Following

    This was a decent little film noir and a nice debut for Christopher Nolan.

  21. MistaRichard's rating of the film Following

    Inspiring. Besides just being a great movie on its own merit, it is truly remarkable when you consider it was made with a modest $6,000 budget. A lesson to all aspiring filmmakers on how to deliver a creative and intelligent film just by using some saved up money and pure wit. And you can already see the style for which he later became known clearly blossoming here. Bloody brilliant.

  22. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Following

    My favorite pre-Batman film by Christopher Nolan.

  23. sabrinahrhp's rating of the film Following

    what a brilliant debut [ 9/200 ]

  24. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Following

    When you see something like this, you tend to get excited at the potential. It's something you have to figure out, because like Memento, the chronology is not straightforward.
