Nolan and Fincher talk about Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life

This short (2:25) featurette on Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life sees two of the most popular directors today — Christopher Nolan and David Fincher — discussing Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, Badlands) and, mostly indirectly, the director’s new film. Malick can be a bit too ponderous for some filmgoers, but I always find it interesting to see filmmakers discuss other filmmakers’ work.

The featurette also displays a bit of footage we haven’t seen in trailers yet, so it’s worth seeing in that respect, too.

“Doodlebug” by Christopher Nolan (yes, THAT one)

With the next Batman film in production now, and people already getting whipped into viral frenzies over it, I thought I’d point you guys towards a Christopher Nolan film that you probably haven’t seen — “Doodlebug” is a creepy short film made by Nolan while a student at university. I’m not sure you can call it a student film if the filmmaker wasn’t a film student, but whatever you call it, it’s very well done for such a small film. “Doodlebug” stars Jeremy Theobald, who also starred in Nolan’s debut feature, Following (which is worth seeing, if you’re a fan of Nolan’s).

(Thanks for the heads up, James Mclaughlin!)
