Following. 1998. Great Britain. Directed by Christopher Nolan. 69 min.
Wannabe writer Bill (Jeremy Theobald) spends his considerable free time tailing people, picked at random, through the streets of London. For a time, his self-imposed regulations give him peace of mind, though soon enough he finds himself breaking his own rules, and the stalking becomes an intensifying obsession. Consequently, Bill is caught in the act by one of his victims, a suave, debonair burglar named Cobb (Alex Haw), who introduces Bill to a voyeuristic world of breaking and entering, where prying into peoples’ lives takes precedence over stealing objects. Through an ingenious series of flashbacks, flash-forwards, and counter-flashbacks, Christopher Nolan’s wickedly clever feature debut ensnares its characters (and the audience) in a winding, startling, and utterly engrossing cinematic labyrinth.
