I know Christopher Nolan doesn’t have to make good movies, not as long as the crap he does make earns millions at the box office. He just has to keep throwing together production ingredients in a haphazard way and letting the franchise momentum carry him on to his next blockbuster.
But doesn’t he at least want to learn his craft, learn how to make shots and choreograph action and tell stories? How dead do you have to be to take money, more money than you could ever possibly spend, for canny incompetence, punching a gold-plated time clock year after year after year?
The guy is a zombie artiste.
