* OnlyOneName: Many characters in his film only use one name, sometimes implying that they're hiding something about their identity. There's "Cobb" in ''Film/{{Following}}'', "Fallon" in ''Film/ThePrestige'', "Lau" and "Gamble" in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', "Arthur", "Eames", "Saito" and "Ariadne" in ''Film/{{Inception}}'', and "Cooper", "Murph", "Doyle" and "Romilly" in ''Film/{{Interstellar}}''. [[note]] The script for ''Interstellar'' gives Cooper's full name as "Joseph C. Cooper" (implying that his daughter is "Murphy Cooper"), but this is never stated in the film itself[[/note]]

** ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy'' was very conservative on the post production special effects. Only the most extravagant or dangerous stunts were performed in post production. But certain scenes like Bruce saving Ducard from sliding off the edge of a cliff was done on location, with the actual actors wearing the necessary safety lines. ''The Dark Knight'' managed to film the flipping of an 18-wheeler by...[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRgq12XOhjc actually flipping an 18-wheeler]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJmEZe3ICpY on the streets of Chicago]]. They got it in one try. The plane hijacking scene in ''Rises'' makes rather spectacular use of practical sets and stuntwork.

* RuleOfThree: His movies are often built around well-defined groups of three. There's the three-act structure of ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy'', the three-part magic tricks in ''Film/ThePrestige'' (the Pledge, the Turn, and [[TitleDrop the Prestige]]), the three layers of Fischer's dream in ''Film/{{Inception}}'' (the City, the Hotel and the Mountain), and the three planets in ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' (Miller's planet, Mann's planet, and Edmunds' planet).
