Christopher Nolan, a name we all are very familiar with. He is indeed, the best of the best directors to have ever existed in Hollywood. His movies are totally incredible and marvellous. Once you get into loving his movies, there is no way out. He has made quite a number of movies and yet some are better than the best.
The best movies ever made by Nolan are:
1.    The Prestige: The prestige is, at its very essence, the most complicated of war movies. Two magicians, Christian Bale as Alfred Borden and Hugh Jackman as Robert Angier, get in a brutal battle to create the biggest of illusions, as they sacrifice their entire lives in order to outshine one another. Led by powerhouse performances from the two protagonists, especially Jackman, the plot tempts you in bringing you closer and closer to what you believe to be the truth, only to pull the carpet straight from under you.
2.    Inception: The foundation of this film is simple, only if you understand the sarcasm that I used. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the role of a thief who uses dream-sharing technology in order to steal business secrets. However, after a long chain of his routine job, he is offered the chance to clear his criminal records and return to the States, and to his children. Besieged with across the board top-drawer performances, from Ellen Page’s newly hired architect who’s brought in to design the dreams, to the almost comedy pairing at times of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy. And that’s without mentioning Dileep Rao as Yusuf and the magnetic Marion Cotillard. This film is a must watch for people who love thrillers.

3.    Interstellar: Starring a freshly Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey alongside fellow Oscar winner Anne Hathaway, Nolan’s space marathon revolved around the fight to save humanity. With the Planet running out of food, a newly found wormhole gives a shine of hope to those on Earth as McConaughey’s ‘Cooper’ and Hathaway’s ‘Dr.Brand’, alongside AI units CASE and TARS leave behind their families for the greater good of the human race. Although the film many of the audiences confused and unanswered, what can’t be denied is the sheer audacity, bravery, and execution of this film. Having consulted leading theoretical physicist Dr. Kip Thorne throughout the whole of production, Nolan was able to deliver an outer-worldly experience to audiences. This film is like a treat for all the space lovers existing out there.

4.    Memento: The story revolves around Guy Pearce’s character Leonard. A man suffering from short-term memory loss and his inability to create new memories following an attack that left him injured and also got his wife killed. The story is clearly, carefully and intricately crafted by Nolan. Due to Nolan’s drip-feeding of information, you cannot help but jump to conclusions on the outcome of Leonard’s story, and whether Joe Pantoliano’s ‘Teddy’ is trust-worthy, which places audiences in a unique position of knowing just as much about the situation than Guy Pearce’s main character does, in fact, we get to learn about Leonard as he learns about himself through the entire movie.

5.    Dunkrik: The film is one of the best Nolan movie to have released and the decision to follow three storylines, on the beaches, on the sea, and in the air, combine for an absolutely classic piece of Cinema. As well as a nomination for best picture, the film would also score a hat-trick of wins in below the line categories, winning the awards for sound mixing, sound editing, and Film editing. And big praise should go to editor Lee Smith for stitching together the three stories in a manner that was easy enough to follow. The film also scored Nolan’s biggest win with critics, landing at a 94/100 on Metacritic.

While the human race is locked inside the house to fight COVID 19, a pandemic which held the entire world hostage in unprecedented and unparalleled manners, while one is even debarred to visit neighborhood milk booth and one is prohibited to cross over to another district in a same state, every piece of literary work is an expression of paranoia in one way or other. View of shillong from Shillong Peak Nation is facing most harsh form of lockdown, and consequent toll on human, psychological as well as physiological, is pushing to the limit of tolerance. At this crossroad in life, picturesque lush green meadow, hills covered with pine trees, fresh air and country roads driven me nostalgic and take me far away from new normal, every time I remembered of Shillong. ‘Scotland of India’ title it rightfully defended perched in East Khasi Hill district of Meghalaya, Shillong lies at north eastern corner on Indian Map.

Pandemic from the eyes of a Villager

I am a city born and have lived in cities my entire life. I have stayed in cities like Bhubaneswar, Kolkata, Mumbai and Bangalore and always had the best facilities that could be provided to a person. So, every time there was national wide concern, I always saw it from the point of view of city life.
