Personal Quote:

[on working with his brother Christopher Nolan] I've always suspected that it has something to do with the fact that he's left-handed and I'm right-handed, because he's somehow able to look at my ideas and flip them around in a way that's just a little bit more twisted and interesting. It's great to be able to work with him like that. See more »

Trivia:

He's known for having a very foul mouth and swearing a lot in interviews although his projects tend not to have much profanity in them. See more »
