One of his early short films which is probably his best also, is ‘Doodlebug’ which he made in
despite him being my favorite director and I just watched it few weeks ago. By watching that film you can see his unique style and the technique he used to shot that film which is amazing.

- Christopher Nolan's Memento June 15, 2001 was business as usual for the Hollywood. The usual string of expensive summer blockbusters were rolled out, with an array of commercial triumphs ("The Mummy Returns") and disappointments ("Pearl Harbor").
