How do I love thee, Christopher Nolan? Let me count the ways

My two favorite directors working today are Christopher Nolan and Ridley Scott (with Quentin Tarantino in a close third place). I have not seen all of Ridley Scott’s films, but I have seen all of Christopher Nolan’s films.

Since I have seen all of his films I thought it would be interesting to rank how I feel they stack up against each other, however, I always feel conflict when ranking films because how do you compare Van Gogh’s Sunflowers to Van Gogh’s Irises and why is it necessary?  Well, it isn’t necessary, but sometimes it can be a fun exercise. So here we go:

  1. The Prestige
  2. The Dark Knight
  3. Dunkirk
  4. Inception
  5. Batman Begins
  6. Memento
  7. Insomnia
  8. Interstellar
  9. The Dark Knight Rises
  10. Following

 

Now I will rank all of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings starting with my favorite The Starry Night.  Just kidding.  What is your Christopher Nolan film rankings and do we match up?  Let me know.
