The Nolan Variations is a rare, intimate portrait of Christopher Nolan, one of the most profound and commercially successful directors at work today. In this in-depth exploration of his work - including The Dark Knight (2008), Inception (2010) and Dunkirk (2017) - Nolan discusses the evolution of his pictures; his thoughts on time, identity, perception, chaos, and daydreams.
The book has been done with the full cooperation of Nolan, who has opened himself up more fully than ever before in his talks with Tom Shone.
TOM SHONE was the film critic of the Sunday Times from 1994 until he moved to New York in 1999. He is the author of five books, including Tarantino: A Retrospective and Martin Scorsese: A Retrospective. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, the Times Literary Supplement, Intelligent Life, and Vogue. He currently teaches film history and criticism at New York University
