Chris Nolan's first film Following is coming to IFC OnDemand and features a brand new trailer!
INCEPTION is Christopher Nolan's new masterpiece, picking apart people's brains everywhere, doing very well at the box office, and just generally being the sort of movie that can turn people into bona fide film lovers.
And if you're anything like me, then you're probably wanting to go back through Nolan's previous catalog of films, revisiting and re-examining, looking for new insights into the modus operandi of one of today's most thought-provoking filmmakers. I just re-watched MEMENTO and THE PRESTIGE, and I certainly found a new appreciation and perspective for those films after watching INCEPTION, which was pretty cool. Films can be great like that, no?
Today comes news that IFC Films will be "re-releasing" Nolan's first film FOLLOWING. The term "re-release" is a bit misleading though, as the film will not be coming to theaters, but instead, be shown on IFC's OnDemand service. It's a great little film, and provided you don't already own it or have seen it via rental or Netflix or whatever, here's another opportunity for you guys to be able to check it out.
Official Press Release: As the hype around INCEPTION comes to a peak, IFC Films is proud to present Christopher Nolan's debut feature film, FOLLOWING, available nationwide on demand via IFC In Theaters.
A fascinating introduction to the talent and vision of a filmmaker who is fast becoming one of the major American directors of our time, FOLLOWING originally debuted in 1998, and enjoyed a quick succession of Festival prizes and wild critical acclaim. The film is a sly neo-noir thriller which follows a writer who picks out strangers at random from the crowded streets of London shadows them see where they go, how they spend their days. FOLLOWING features the innovative blend of high-minded style and genre elements that Nolan has now made his trademark.
The film will enjoy a three month period of availability on demand via cable providers Comcast, Cox, Cablevision, Time Warner, Bright House, Charter and Insight.
