Christopher Nolan’s first feature film is still one of his best, and it will make you a little sad that he’s unlikely to return to such small-scale storytelling. While the director clearly excels at set pieces and big ideas, Following is a neat little noir that feels like it was plucked out of the 1940s, complete with femme fatale and hapless stooge. The story of a man who randomly follows people only to be chosen by one of his targets for an elaborate scheme, Following is clearly the first step in Nolan’s development as a director, but damn what a confident step it is. You have no problem believing this is the work of a director who would go on to tell a story in reverse or use Batman as a parable for the War on Terror. – Matt Goldberg
