Christopher Nolan, the filmmaker behind some of the most popular titles in the last years, is still working for another masterpiece which has yet to be given a title. Nolan has been quite a hit due to his fantastic movies. The Dark Knight series, Interstellar and Inception are only some of his greatest pieces of work, but we now know that there is something more behind the scenes, something that we should really be looking forward to given his previous performances.
Cristopher Nolan’s next movie is a secret, but it did get a release date: after the next “Planet of the Apes” movie and before the next “Spider-Man” movie which will result from Marvel and Sony’s collaboration. While things still remain a little vague, it is safe to say that Nolan’s next movie might go down in history yet again. It is only a matter of time.
In the meantime, Nolan is not affected by critics. At least that is what he let us know earlier this year, when the 45 year old filmmaker openly admitted that, despite the wild attention that his films draw, he treats critics with a very relaxed approach. And he is quite right to do so because let’s face the facts: whether you are great or horrible in this world, people are going to talk nonetheless.
Christopher admitted that “it’s not as hard to keep your reactions in proportion” as many think. Bad reviews will make you angry and unwilling to accept them, but if somebody is really fond of movies and states that your title is one of the best, it will obviously change your mood for the better. But the same movie gets good and bad reviews and the secret lies in the balance.
The truth is that movies are acclaimed for their positive/negative percentages. If the reviews are 50-50, it means the movie is neither good, nor bad. The more positives you get and the more you rise above the 50% threshold, the better the movie is. And this is how Nolan got all his nominations in the first place: a considerable number of good reviews that overtook the negative ones.
In the end, Nolan mentioned to most important review feature: subjectivity. People either like the movies or not, it’s all up to them, really. He himself is subjective to a good number of movies that he watches, so if you want top advice from one of the best filmmakers in the world right now, remember one thing: don’t be reactive to subjectivity.
