Re­vis­it­ing a clas­sic

Nolan es­ti­mates he’s seen 2001 dozens of times in re­cent months. “The skill of it, it’s just staggering,” he says, with about as much an­i­ma­tion as the cease­lessly even­tem­pered Bri­tish film­maker typ­i­cally shows. Mean­while, Nolan has been slowly work­ing on writ­ing his fol­low-up to Dunkirk. He hasn’t got­ten “ter­ri­bly far,” he says chuck­ling. “I have learned through this ex­pe­ri­ence that if you’re try­ing to write a script, watch­ing 2001 ev­ery week is not the best way,” Nolan says. “It’s a lit­tle daunt­ing.”
