Christopher Nolan is renowned for his mind-blowing films which goes one step ahead of audience’s minds such as ‘The Dark Knight’ (2008) film franchise, ‘Interstellar’ (2014), ‘Dunkirk’ (2017), ‘Tenet’ (2020) and many more. The director keeps his audience in suspense till the end of the movies with grasping storylines. Leonardo DiCaprio and Christopher Nolan both are top-notch at their respective fields.
Nolan has complimented DiCaprio in person for his excellent performance. In an interview with Tribute.ca (Tribute Movies) he said, “The challenge is striking a balance between allowing the actor going to work on the project to feel in collusion, and like they’ll be genuine creative collaborators. When you go to an actor like Leonardo DiCaprio you have to be extremely respectful of his creative role in things. You have to embrace him as a fully-authorised collaborator.”
He further added, “It was very important to show him a complete script and talk to him over a number of days and fill him in on every aspect of what I was going to do with it. But a guy like Leo is happy to do that within the context of privacy, and he was very gracious about understanding that if he didn’t want to do the movie, he wasn’t going to go around town telling everybody about it.”
