An average movie with a unique way of telling the story. As others have stated, you can see the greatness of Chris Nolan through this film. Much like Pi, this movie is only as good as it's budget, which is very low. Nolan fans need to see it, but others should stay away .

There is much to admire in it's twisted, time jumping narrative and pulsing music. Nolan's directorial debut shows the beginnings of a sophisticated storyteller. The story itself isn't his best, though. Worth watching for the Nolan fan.

I'm not going to say I was blown away by this early Christopher Nolan film, but the characters and story do hint of better things to come. Twisted and at time brilliant, any fan of the director should check it out.

Our Daily Free Stream: Christopher Nolan - Follwing. Our Daily Free Stream: Christopher Nolan - Follwing. Ich habe mir den ersten Film von Christopher Nolan angesehen, die britische No-Budget Produktion Follwing und war verblüfft: In seinem Debüt steckt der Kern aller seiner Filme! In Following bemerken wir Nolans Vorliebe für eine verschachtelte Erzählstruktur mit einem Twist am Ende - in dem schliesslich alle Stücke als Ganzes erscheinen. Natürlich in einem anderen Bedeutungszusammenhang! Manchmal mag man sich wundern, wie notwendig einzelne Passagen denn letztlich für das grosse Ganze gewesen sein mögen - in jedem Fall aber tragen sie dazu bei, dass Following einfach Spass macht! Als wir die Videothek Filmkunst (bzw. heute Filmkunstbar Fitzcarraldo) vor zehn Jahren eröffneten, hatten w...

This film completely blew my mind. Not necessarily because of the signature Christopher Nolan twist and chronology, but because of it's unique qualities. I have never heard of a 70 minute film that packs as huge a punch as this. Drama, intensity, dialogue, action.....this film truly has it all. I really was so captivated by the film and each scene was so brilliantly executed; time did not matter. It delivered just as much as any normal 2 hour feature film. Brilliant!

The budget of this film is basically was $60,000! That's all! In fact, the crew worked only on weekends in between their normal day jobs. Also, the actors were no names. They give fantastic performances considering they have been in nothing besides this. The performances definitely could have been better...

How do you make an engrossing crime drama with just a $6,000 budget? You can’t, but Christopher Nolan can. Nolan was the director, writer, photographer, editor and producer for this film, which came out in 1998. This was his first feature film, made before anybody knew what Memento was and LONG before anybody knew what The Dark Knight was. Christopher Nolan was just getting his feet wet, but he shows here that he was a force to be reckoned with. Nolan has a fantastic imagination, one that he has used to make some magnificent films, and Following is no exception to the rule.

Following is about an unemployed writer (simply credited as The Young Man) who begins following around random strangers in the streets just to see where they go and what they do. As time passes he decides to start f...
