* ViewersAreGeniuses: His stock and trade. Nolan is ''not'' a filmmaker who dumbs things down for his audience, that's for damn sure.

* AnachronicOrder: There's elements of this in every single one of his films (except ''The Dark Knight''). It's most extensively used in ''Memento'', over the course of the whole film (the main narrative is entirely in reverse scene by scene, with a b-story that happens prior chronologically intercut). There's also elements of this in ''Batman Begins'' and ''Man Of Steel'', which both have extensive flashback sequences over their first halves.

''Dunkirk'' is a particularly bizarre example, as the events are ''technically'' all overlapping but we see them in three different time scales (a week, a day, and an hour, respectively.)

His films tend to emphasize themes of obsession, deception, guilt, and {{order versus chaos}}, and all of his films are driven by a man lying to himself or others to cope with grief. He is the brother of Creator/JonathanNolan.
