Directors of Cinema: Episode 16 – Christopher Nolan

Directors of Cinema podcast 2

Greetings and welcome to yet another episode of Directors of Cinema. If you’re unfamiliar with our podcast, this is a show dedicated to the discussion of selected works of prominent filmmakers. Each week, host Matt Goudreau and guest talk about a particular director chosen by the co-host.

On this episode, Matt is joined by first time guests Katey S. and co-founder of The Young Folks Gabrielle B. Luckily for your host, both were willing and more than ready to discuss the merits of director Christopher Nolan. Thanks to his Dark Knight Trilogy and films like Inception and Memento, Nolan has become a favorite for mainstream and critic audiences alike. Does his filmography warrant the praise he receives? You’ll have to listen in order to find out.

As always, feel free to download the show for later enjoyment or listen to it directly on Shoutengine.

Directors of Cinema – Episode 16- Christopher Nolan

Matt is a 21 year old film buff and recent graduate from The University of Rhode Island. Growing up in a small town in the smallest state, Matt began developing a taste in film and general geekdom at a young age. After years of watching various DC and Marvel animated television shows as a boy, Matt has become quite the afficinado in the realm of comic books. Towards the end of middle school, Matt began delving into the world of film by watching anything he could get his hands on. Nowadays, his tastes range from classic film noir and the mindbending works of David Cronenberg to the latest trends on the independent scene. Don't worry; he's still one for the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or DC animated adventure. Comics aren't the only source of literature Matt enjoys. He can sometimes be spotted reading the works of Stephen King or even the plays of William Shakespeare. As an aspiring film critic and screenwriter, Matt is always looking for inspiration and new ideas.
