Check Out The Movies That Christopher Nolan Reckons Everyone Should See

Christopher Nolan is one of the more accomplished movie directors of recent times out there – boasting an opus of work that includes art house classic like Memento to humongous blockbusters like The Dark Knight and Interstellar – so when he tells you all the movies he thinks you should be watching, it’s probably going to be a better list than the guy who you met backpacking through Thailand’s.

Unfortunately – or maybe fortunately – I haven’t even heard of a lot of these movies so it might take me a while to get through them all, but I suppose that’s better than if I had seen pretty much all of them right? Hope they’re all on Netflix:

Yeah, honest to God haven’t even heard of things like The Right Stuff and Bad Timing, but movies like The Thin Red Line, Saving Private Ryan  and Superman – The Movie are obvious classics and probably worth rewatching if I’m gonna be a super geek and go through the whole list. There are probably a lot worse movies that you could spend your time watching, so it’s probably not that bad an idea is it?
