(definition of an Auteur is a director who has a unique style and vision for his/her films that can be used to categorize their films. simply put, you know it's his film without the directors name appearing in any credits.
philosophy paper using Memento as a the topic. And yes, i do know there is a whole book of essays entitled "Memento and Philosophy." I am currently reading this collection of essays and so far my idea hasn't been mentioned as a full essay. the title of the paper I'm working on now is called "Memento's and Truth" and is going to discuss the philosophical idea of truth and reality in terms of memento. but enough about my nolan based accomplishments.
Interesting paper. I would completely agree that Nolan is an auteur. Memento is easily considered one of the most original movies of the decade for which he received a screenplay nomination, and The Dark Knight completely transcended the superhero genre. Every superhero that comes out from now on will be compared without a doubt to The Dark Knight. The fact that Nolan hasn't made a whole bunch of films yet is because he is so particular and he can't be committed to a project if he doesn't believe it will succeed. That is a quality I admire in a filmmaker and he has set benchmarks for cinema that very few directors can match.

wanted to know if with the dream machine shirt you could get the big url writing on the back, with inception also written on both sleeves, all together.

just ordered a normal 'dream machine' top, hope it hits my home (Hobart, Tas, Aus) before our premier of Inception of July 22nd

am going to IMAX Melbourne, already got a ticket for midnight sell out ( says its 140mins)

this is unlike Dark Knight, which i would have seen about 72 hours before ya'll state side.
