411mania: It's amazing to watch Christopher Nolan become the filmmaker that M. Night Shyamalan was supposed to be. If Nolan isn't already in your top five regular directors, he should be. He first burst onto the mainstream scene with the gimmicky thriller Memento before hitting it big with the reboot of the Batman franchise, Batman Begins. His brilliant The Dark Knight transcended its comic-book roots to become a cinematic masterpiece. Inception allows us to see a master craftsman at work without the confines of gimmick or expectation.
