Only the classic trilogy! Hahahahaha!
Hah, yea. I'm not too fond of the new trilogy, but the fight scenes in the new ones are to die for.

I disagree. I believe Batman Begins goes against Nolan's trademark style the most. It is his only film which is relatively optimistic and has a happy ending. All of his other films (keeping in form with his style) have been rather pessimistic and have had downer endings.

Anyways, My order would be:

1 - Memento/The Dark Knight (Two very different films which both represent Nolan finest accomplishments)
2 - Batman Begins
3 - The Prestige
4 - Following
5 - Insomnia

hmmmm good lists everyone

1 Memento
2.Batman Begins
3.The Prestige
4.Following
5.Insomnia
6.The Dark Knight

Top Performances

1.Heath Ledger - The Dark Knight
2.Guy Pearce - Memento
3.Al Pacino - Insomnia
4.Alex Haw - Following

1. The Dark Knight - 4/4
2. Batman Begins - 4/4
3. Following - 3.5/4
4. Memento - 3.5/4
5. Insomnia - 3.5/4
6. The Prestige - 3/4

All great films. The first two are the only masterpieces he's made so far simply because he hasn't had the production resources outside of the Batman films. I'm sure with Inception (and its $200 mil budget) that Nolan will be able to bring his true mind to the screen with remarkable results.
