* StuffedIntoTheFridge: A number of his films have heroes motivated primarily by the deaths of their loved ones, guilt over [[ILetGwenStacyDie their deaths]], and so on. ''Film/{{Memento}}'', ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', ''Film/{{Inception}}'' heavily feature this.

* AuteurLicense: Hollywood is under the impression that any film in which he has the slightest involvement will turn to box-office gold. Considering his solid three-film streak, it's not exactly far-fetched.

Added DiffLines:

* EnforcedMethodActing: Nolan loves using complete sets, practical effects, and making actors eat real food on camera. Especially on ''Film/{{Dunkirk}},'' where hydraulics were used to simulate the impact of real ordinance.

* 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.)
