The bias against him certainly exist. He has the entire film industry by its throat.

An honourable man in a town of pigs. Nolan is an oddity in Hollywood.

No stereotypical outburst, loss of control or sanity. Also, he doesn't play politics.

I agree, but it disgusts me since, as far as I can tell, he's the best hope Hollywood has going forward.

And yeah the awards bullcrap has never been so irrelevant. I can't wait for "Black Panther" to sweep next year's awards..... :facepalm:

He is this generation's Steven Spielberg.

He's like a blend of Speilberg (due to $$$) with Kubrick (his style of filmmaking). I.e. I guarantee you 90-95% of the next generation of young filmmakers will end up citing him as a major influence for their work even if he never wins an Oscar.

Still I want him to win one.... but I'd rather he not get political or suck up to the Hollywood system. They need him more than he needs them.

Bouncing off this... does anyone else feel like the quality of filmmaking is doing downhill? Like... even the films with Oscar nominations/buzz are disappointing.

It's not just this year either. I was disappointed by the films I saw last year which were up for Oscars. (Moonlight, La La Land, Arrival all left me feeling kinda empty... honestly, I saw "Silence" a few months back and liked it better than any other 2016 movie. Shame it only got a cinematography nomination...)

I tend to like older cinema and arthouse cinema moreso anyway... so it might just be me. But does anyone else feel like most of the industry is lacking in talent (outside Lord Nolan of course lol)?

of course my friend when you see what mr nolan did in dunkirk was something balsy and very artistic it's around lawrence of arabia and the thin red line even somehow ryan's daughter by some framing and large format portraiture for example the shots framing faces are brilliant he did basically an art piece une une oeuvre-d'art tout simplement and the other are really clowns around him so he's like the one seeing person rejected by the blinds :batman: :batman: :batman: :batman: :batman:

and a fact social medias are somehow also responsible of the dying and struggling of cinema and also the digital technolgies in every aspects they killed the essence of what a human being is what he must accomplish so on and so forth they're like making the world smaller and this is the complete opposite of what we need humans needs to imagine to think to experience the reality not to live it behind a screen chris sees the world like that as an experience he does everything for real he wants the best quality possible this is something very normal as a human being as a smart and bright person unfortunately few are thinking like that CHRISTOPHER NOLAN save us :batman: :batman: :batman: :batman: :batman: :batman: :batman: :batman:
