Christopher Nolan: TIME’s 100 Most Influential People

story-chrisnolan-art

After a lavish spread about Christopher Nolan’s latest film Interstellar, TIME Magazine has included Nolan in their list of 100 Most Influential People. Categorised with other Artists like Richard Linklater, Julianne Moore and Kevin Hart, Nolan’s entry was composed by none other than Sir Michael Caine:

Philosopher of screen

From Batman Begins to Interstellar, I did six blockbusters in a row with Christopher Nolan. I don’t think I’ve done two blockbusters in a row with anyone else. I used to call him the new David Lean, but he’s not. He’s the Christopher Nolan.

Aside from being a brilliant director, he’s a brilliant screenwriter with an element of surprise and an intelligence that’s quite extraordinary. Just when you think that’s where we’re going, he says, “Let’s go over there!”

Christopher is very secretive, and each film has a code title. He had us call Inception by the name Oliver’s Arrow. On the set, no matter how hot it is, he wears an overcoat and sips tea all day. You wouldn’t be able to pick him out as the director. There’s no shouting and screaming—he’s a very quiet gentleman. If you get it wrong, you just do it again. It’s like working with a philosopher.

The list will be featured in the April 27th, 2015 issue.
