interesting movie
6 April 2012 | by hoteteu_nSee all my reviews

a very good idea from the Christopher Nolan, man who creates legendary movies like BATMAN BEGINS, THE DARK KNIGHT or INCEPTION.

don't watch this for special effects !! This "movie" is a short one, 3 min long, but original in style and screenplay. It's not high definition, but it doesn't matter anymore. Look at FOLOWING or any other movie made by Nolan, this man likes to play with human emotions and fears.

Waiting the next movies of Nolan :)

PS: you will find this one on the internet. Nolan it's a genius of words and original ideas. I didn't know his movies are so original until i saw PRESTIGE, this and BATMAN MEGINS, a few years ago. Will be greater than Peter Jackson or "the master" Steven Spielberg. Without spoilers, i have to say this is the most refreshing short movie.
