With the release of Dunkirk and due to popular demand we're starting a new topic challenge. From 2017-07-22 00:00 UTC to 2017-07-30 23:00 UTC we're challenging you to all your great questions about Christopher Nolan and the films written/directed by him.

Once the challenge is over, we'll tally the results and winners (by question score) here. Also don't forget to suggest and vote for new topics for our next possible challenge.

1) But don't feel compelled to add a tag to each and every of those questions, tag responsibly instead.

  • So are we meant to ask a question as an answer (down below) or as a proper answer to an ordinary question. Reason I have asked is because I have never done one of these before.

    Acceptance speech: Wow! I cannot believe that I won this challenge! I admittedly do not appreciate Christopher Nolan's work like others on this site do cough Napoleon and Ankit. I was prompted to participate in this challenge so that I can start appreciating Mr. Nolan's work more. Thank you to Ankit for "urging" me to participate ;), to Napoleon for providing an awesome answer and for my other chat buddies, AJ and S S for participating with me!!! <thanking the little people> :P Commented Jul 31, 2017 at 12:11
