Before Memento, Inception, and his genre-transcending "Batman" trilogy, Christopher Nolan made an auspicious debut with this microbudget British film noir that makes a virtue out of necessity. Shot in black and white on grainy 16mm stock with a handheld camera, Following tracks an aspiring writer who shadows strangers around London. His skulking leads him to an opportunistic burglar he joins up with as research for a novel. The inclusion of a linear cut for comparison and a fascinating interview makes this a must for Nolan fans.
