  1. J. D.'s rating of the film Following

  2. Jack's rating of the film Following

    The first feature of Christopher Nolan's perplexing, idiosyncratic catalogue offers an insight into the intricacy of time, with its non-linear narrative. The lack of dialogue further augments the mystery surrounding the entire film.

  3. Gabrielė Norkūnaitė's rating of the film Following

    3.5 I have some issues with Nolan. His films are cinematic, but the use of some old tricks to make the viewer feel clever (fans of Nolan are the most annoying with their feeling of superiority) while making a rather simple film is both a curse and a blessing. All things aside, dude really loves cinema and while Following may not be the most visually striking of his, it shows how to make a good movie with no money.

    ★★★★★You will see it by hook or by crook

  7. Duarte Ferreira's rating of the film Following

    A stripped back neo-noir thriller that also serves as a magnificent archetype for almost all of Nolan's filmography from there onward. You can really see Nolan's strengths as a visual storyteller, constantly mapping out these little visual cues that form themselves into larger a picture with time, giving new meaning to the past and bracing us for the inevitability of the future, already written out in celluloid.

  8. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Following

    A surprisingly well shot work. Nolan handles his limited means with great creativity. And clearly the unfolding of the twisted narration with its jumps in time already foreshadows elements of his following films.

  9. SpacePirate's rating of the film Following

    Made for less than 10k, this movie really has no right to be as amazing as it is. Great pacing, clever editing that Nolan would use again on some of his bigger features, and a script with multiple timelines which interweave beautifully. A must see for film students and really anyone with a love of the cinema. This is what its all about. 4.5 stars, an incredible early entry from Nolan.

  10. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Following

    3.4 They used a hammer because toy guns look cheap.

  11. Salma Dahab's rating of the film Following

    This "Alex Haw" is something

  12. Psycoteraphy's rating of the film Following

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

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

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

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

  18. 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.

  19. Matthew Almont's rating of the film Following

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

  20. 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.

  21. 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!

  23. 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 who you're watching! Bonus: check out the Batman emblem on the door late in the movie...portent of things to come...
