It is on my list. About the last book about Nolan I haven't read. I heard it is good and I will diffinately buy it one day, but now I am in the middle of 'The Dark Knight' by Craig Byrne (featuring production art and full shooting script).

There is a topic for books about Christopher Nolan: http://www.nolanfans.com/forums/viewtop ... f=21&t=366

I wonder that too, because sometime studio exec are hard to impress especially with young filmmaker, in my opinion the way Nolan presented the script of Memento probably wowed them. :thumbup:

Well, the story this:
Following was playing on several Film Festivals, and Nolan was there. He asked people for money for his next movie. Some people stepped up, and listend to Nolan's idea.
