* DoingItForTheArt: He refused to have ''Inception'' or ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' shot/converted to 3D because he didn't think it would look good enough. He also uses in-camera effects over CGI for the same reasons, [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome resulting in some of the most jaw-dropping action sequences on film.]]



* FakeAmerican: ''{{Film/Insomnia}}'' and ''{{Film/Following}}'' are his only films not to have at least one example of this.



* PlayingAgainstType: If you only see the casting list of his movies without knowing the characters the actors play, it'll be difficult to guess who are playing the good guys and who are playing the villains.



* ProductionPosse: Often works with the same actors in different films, even beyond the Batman franchise.
** MichaelCaine especially for appearing in every one of Nolans films since Begins. Other actors in this posse are Creator/ChristianBale, Creator/CillianMurphy, Creator/KenWatanabe, Creator/JosephGordonLevitt, Creator/TomHardy, Creator/MarionCotillard and Creator/AnneHathaway. Goes double for Creator/TomHardy, who played the villain in Star Trek Nemesis. It was supposed to be his breakout role into stardom. Instead, it murdered his acting career right until this little movie called ''Inception'' came out... and now he played Bane in the third installment of the ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''. If Caine's career was saved, Hardy's career was resurrected and injected with steroids.
** On the other side of the camera, he collaborates with his brother Jonathan on writing (see below), his wife Emma Thomas produces, Lee Smith edits (since ''Batman Begins''), Music/HansZimmer often scores his later films -- David Julyan scored his earlier work, from ''Following'' to ''The Prestige'' -- and Wally Pfister has done the cinematography for all but two of his films: ''Film/{{Following}}'' (and it was during a festival showing he met Pfister, they have worked together since) and ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' (due to Pfister working on ''Film/{{Transcendence}}'').



* CreatorCouple: He is married to Emma Thomas, who has produced all of his films since ''Film/{{Following}}''.



* ReclusiveArtist: Doesn't have a cell phone or e-mail address, and [[http://herocomplex.latimes.com/2010/12/08/christopher-nolan-hollywood-takes-too-many-shortcuts/ hid out in a trailer park]] writing his next project and [[BadassBeard growing a hermit beard.]]

* HumansAreBastards

to:

* HumansAreBastardsHumansAreBastards: A common topic in most of his films in regards to Human nature. However, most of them end up showing the [[RousseauWasRight complete opposite of the trope]], and the ones who thought so previously end up being wrong. This is especially notable in The Dark Knight and Interstellar.


Added DiffLines:

** However, his recent films, especially Interstellar show a great amount of idealism, especially in the sense of hope.

* CloseOnTitle: ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'' and ''{{Inception}}'' have the title card appear at the end, instead of the beginning. FridgeBrilliance: He put the title card at the beginning of ''Film/{{Memento}}'', a film where the events are shown in backward chronological order.
