FOLLOWING is a wickedly clever story of how a young man's obsession with following people leads himinto a dark underworld. Bill, the unlikely hero, is a marginalized but intriguing Everyman who follows strangers at random on the street. When Cobb, a man Bill has been following, catches him in the act, Bill is drawn into Cobb's world of breaking into flats and prying into the personal lives of the victims. In Cobb, Bill finds a strange companion - part mentor, part confessor and part evil twin.With an ingenious structure that involves flash forwards and doubling back, the film tests our knowledge and understanding just as the protagonist is being duped into an elaborate triple-cross. FOLLOWING heralded Christopher Nolan as a promising new talent whose promise was amply confirmed with Memento.
Creepy intimacy, plenty of suspense, and a few surprises enliven this black-and-white treat from the director of Memento. Bill is a struggling writer who fills his time and mind by following random strangers he sees on the street. After breaking his own rule ("never follow the same person twice") he becomes fascinated by Cobb, a voyeur who takes things one step further--actually breaking into people's homes to sift through their things. As you might expect, the relationship soon becomes unhealthy. Writer-director Christopher Nolan already reveals a sure hand in this early neo-noir work. Like Memento, Following toys with timelines, jumping back and forth and carefully dropping bits of information exactly when they're needed. Short and sharp, Following features an intriguing plot line and fine, understated performances by the entire cast. Don't miss it. --Ali Davis

you can see some of Nolan's future film work in this story.
Filmed for $6000 its better than most the movies these days that cost 80M to make.

I’ve enjoyed most of Christopher Nolan’s movies and this one isn’t really an exception. It certainly isn’t as good as his later stuff, but for one of his first endeavors and, what... Read morePublished 14 months ago by thelizcass

A bit of a snooze, but fun if you like puzzles. He kind of ripped off usual suspects. Low budget is an understatement.Published 16 months ago by sxxxxzsssQsssccxxcdzcxvvnec cededxcwdefc cf fcssx,xv f zcccnjvbbbbvvvv vvvvvvvvv
Good but not surprising. The patsy was set up all along, and it was a bit dated, simple minded, and 50's Twilight ZonePublished 18 months ago by Amazon Customer
