Christopher Nolan tells Stephen Colbert he has “no guilt about being a fan of the Fast & Furious franchise. A tremendous action franchise. I watch those movies all the time. I love them.”

I don't really believe this - my guess is he enjoyed the first one, mentioned it once, and noticed that it made people think he's less of a prig, and one thing led to another and now he's telling Colbert that he loves a franchise that has become a stale, ugly, unfun caricature of itself. Wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't even know that because he hasn't seen the last few installments.

But it really does make him seem like less of a prig that he cares about people thinking he's a prig.

Could we stop already, with Christopher Nolan?

His first movie, Following, was great. Memento was pretty good. It's been downhill since then, one cringe-fest after another. He would be doing so much better if his movie budgets were reduced by 90-95%.

I really liked Dunkirk, though.

Memento is good the first few times you watch it. It's a clever premise, but then becomes absurd upon scrutiny.

I have never seen Following. But the Prestige is a great movie, and I enjoyed Dunkirk. I disliked everything else.
