    “Directors Would Give Eye Teeth To…”: Christopher Nolan Reveals Why He Makes Large-Scale Movies

    One of the most important filmmakers of our time, Christopher Nolan, has proven his mettle with mind-bending storylines and intricate character detailing in each of his films. In recent times, his ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy and films like ‘Inception’, ‘Dunkirk’, and the recent ‘Oppenheimer’ have been critically acclaimed and proved to be money spinners.

    Christopher Nolan has been known for staging great sets with a stellar ensemble in his recent films. ‘Oppenheimer’ revived the box office during the 2023 summer. For the film, Nolan recreated the infamous nuclear test that became a significant moment, changing the course of World War II. It also had an ensemble composed of Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr., and others. Recently, the director talked about why he feels the need to mount such big films.

    During the interview, Christopher Nolan said, “I’m drawn to working at a large scale because I know how fragile the opportunity to marshal those resources is.”

    Christopher Nolan added, “I know that there are so many filmmakers out there in the world who would give their eye teeth to have the resources I put together, and I feel I have the responsibility to use them in the most productive and interesting way.”
