Following [1998]

A deserving preview of the massive amount of talent Christopher Nolan would display in the following years to this 1998 first work. Memento was his breakthrough and Following resembles that film’s structure but in a simpler, much more modest way. Shot in 16mm and on a $6,000 budget, Following is tense, exciting and unpredictable, albeit a little short at just 69 minutes.  Alex Haw and Lucy Russell are devilishly good in this neo-noir.
