<span><span>As a director, writer, and producer, Christopher Nolan has made a substantial impact on contemporary cinema through both </span><span style="font-style:italic;">avant garde</span><span> films, such as </span><span style="font-style:italic;">Following</span><span> and </span><span style="font-style:italic;">Memento</span><span>, and his contributions to major pop culture franchises with his </span><span style="font-style:italic;">Dark Knight</span><span> trilogy and his involvement in both </span><span style="font-style:italic;">Man of Steel</span><span> and </span><span style="font-style:italic;">Batman v Superman</span><span>. His most recent film, </span><span style="font-style:italic;">Interstellar</span><span>, delivered the same visual qualities and complex, thought-provoking plotlines his audience has come to expect. This volume collects sixteen essays written by professional philosophers and film theorists that discuss various philosophical themes either represented within a particular film or are characteristic of Nolan's overall thematic vision across his cinematic </span><span style="font-style:italic;">oeuvre</span><span>. These themes include self-identity and self-destruction, moral choice and moral doubt, the nature of truth and its value, whether we can trust our perceptions of what's "real," the political psychology of heroes and villains, and what it means to be a "viewer" of Nolan's films. Whether his protagonists are squashing themselves like a bug, struggling to create an identity and moral purpose for themselves, suffering from their own duplicitous plots that cause them to doubt their own perceptions of their self and the world around them, donning a mask that both strikes fear and reveals their true nature, or having to weigh the lives of those they love against the greater good in the face of the unknown, there are no simple solutions to the questions Nolan's films provoke; yet exploring these questions yields its own reward.</span></span>
