Before he became a Hollywood titan, redefining the contemporary superhero film with his Batman trilogy and creating one of the biggest-budget head trip movies of all time with Inception, Christopher Nolan was an idiosyncratic auteur with limited resources, relying on ingenuity and craft. Tomorrow, his L.A. fans will have the rare chance to see him speak about his beginnings and his career as a whole, in an event called An Evening with Christopher Nolan, at the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art, following a screening of his microbudget noir debut Following.
