Critics Consensus

Super brief but efficient, Following represents director Christopher Nolan's burgeoning talent in tight filmmaking and hard-edge noir.

Audience Reviews for Following

  • Jan 31, 2017
    One of the most captivating indie films I've ever seen - especially impressive for a film shot on just a £3,000 budget.

    The Following is not a bad noir film. While not quite amateur, it is a novice effort -- both imaginative and naive. The plot is a bit too clever, but it is an interesting (and short) film. Recommended more to fans of black-and-white noir than to Christopher Nolan fans.

    I know that this film has been really well-received in retrospect because it's a Chris Nolan film, but I just didn't like it. And I love most of Nolan's movies. Nothing really happened the whole time until the ending, and that was really stupid. The neo-noir style is cool, but like I said, this film in general just didn't appeal to me.

    Unconventional but strangely engaging, Following may not be Christopher Nolan's most refined film, but it's surely one of his most unique.
