“I think I’m not so much a fan of science fiction as I am a fan of cinema that creates worlds, that creates an entire alternate universe that you could escape into for a couple of hours.”
Films are subjective, what you like, what you don’t like. But the thing for me that is absolutely unifying is the idea that every time I go to the cinema and pay my money and sit down and watch a film go up on-screen, I want to feel that the people who made that film think it’s the best movie in the world, that they poured everything into it and they really love it. Whether or not I agree with what they’ve done I want that effort there, I want that sincerity. And when you don’t feel it, that’s the only time I feel like I’m wasting my time at the movies ─ Christopher Nolan
