Pradeep Menon on Film
Christopher Nolan’s crisp black-and-white debut feature, Following, is a gritty thriller that rarely gives you time to pause for breath. It tells the story of a writer who follows people to glean stories from their lives, before things take a murky turn. Written, directed and co-edited by Nolan himself, Following was made over a period of a year, with part-time actors and a tiny budget. Even then, one can see his trademark non-linear narrative and his penchant for keeping the audience guessing till the very end and delivering a knockout conclusion.
