This is one of the few movies that provides indelible characters, a crafty plot, and artistic filmmaking. The black and white world of Following, shot with a non-clausterphobic intimacy, invites the viewer into an almost play-like world of acts and resolutions while (notably) preserving the liberty obtainable only through a camera. At first glance, the film seemed to underperform its potential. However, I think this seeming underperformance actually provides the film with the metaphorical space of doubt that provides an important dose of realism into an otherwise off-the-wall production. Moreover, it has been bandied about at Chris Nolan and cast shot this baby on weekends with savings from their day jobs. Given this humble context, I must applaud the result with paroxysms of delight.
