4.0 out of 5 stars (Almost) a perfect collection for one of the best living directors, 25 Dec. 2012
By 
This review is from: Christopher Nolan Director's Collection [Blu-ray] [2000] (Blu-ray)
It's missing a few films that Nolan directed (most notably his version of Insomnia) but this package still has some of the greatest films from the 21st century - so lets not get too picky.

From the mind-melting trickery of Memento and Inception to the big-budget psychological power house that is the Batman trilogy (and the under-rated The Prestige), Christopher Nolan (and his brother Jonathan) twists the knife into the audience so hard, it's tough to not want to watch these films multiple times.

Critics say his films lack emotional attachment to the characters, but that's like criticising Citizen Kane for not being 'funny enough'. Nolan's films are designed to ask questions and make you uneasy - no matter if they have the big Hollywood budget or are a small indie effort. They're made so well, and grip so tightly, it's tough to stop watching once you've started.

The blu-ray edition contains a ridiculous number of extras - from in-screen commentary to a full colour booklet with brief puff pieces about each film. The Prestige has the least for die-hards to watch, but there's still a heck of a lot here for the money (and, of course, you get the whole of the Batman trilogy in HD plus all the crazy hidden features from Memento's special edition DVD, which is probably worth the cost alone anyway).

Overall, despite the missing films, this collection should really be on your shelf.
