Christopher Nolan’s Top 10

Christopher Nolan is the director of Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception, and The Dark Knight Rises.

1. 黑幫叛徒 The Hit 

Stephen Frears

That Criterion has released this little-known Stephen Frears gem is a testament to the thoroughness of their search for obscure masterworks. Few films have gambled as much on a simple portrayal of the dynamics between desperate men . . .

2. 十二怒漢  12 Angry Men

Sidney Lumet

. . . except perhaps this Sidney Lumet classic.

3. 《紅色警戒》| 1998 | 美國 | 泰倫斯·馬力克 54歲

What better than Malick’s extraordinary vision of war to demonstrate the technical potential of a carefully mastered Blu-ray? Projecting this disc comes close to the original print quality, and it’s hard to imagine a superior consumer format coming along anytime soon.

4. 馬布斯博士的遺產 The Testament of Dr. Mabuse

弗里茨·朗 Fritz Lang

Lang at his most wicked and entertaining. Essential research for anyone attempting to write a supervillain.

5. 性昏迷 Bad Timing

Nicolas Roeg

Nic Roeg’s films are known for their structural innovation, but it’s great to be able to see them in a form that also shows off their photographic excellence.

6. 《俘虜》Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence | 1983 | 日英 | 大島渚 51歲 | 坎城電影節 

Few films have been able to capture David Bowie’s charisma, but Oshima’s wartime drama seems tailor-made for his talents. Tom Conti has rarely been such a sympathetic guide for the audience’s emotions.

7. 為了全人類 For All Mankind

Al Reinert

An incredible document of man’s greatest endeavor.

8. 機械生活 Koyaanisqatsi

Godfrey Reggio

An incredible document of how man’s greatest endeavors have unsettling consequences. Art, not propaganda, emotional, not didactic; it doesn’t tell you what to think—it tells you what to think about.

9. 阿卡丁先生 The Complete Mr. Arkadin

奧森·威爾斯 Orson Welles

No one could make much of a case for Welles’ abortive movie overall, but the heartbreaking glimpses of the great man’s genius preserved here are the most compelling argument for the value of Criterion’s dedication to cinema. 

10. 貪婪 Greed(1924)|  導演:埃里克·馮·施特羅海姆

Which brings me to Greed, von Stroheim’s lost work of absolute genius. Which is not available on Criterion. Yet. Here’s hoping.
