Christopher Nolan, this name doesn't need any introduction. From small budget independent films to giving the biggest Hollywood blockbusters, it has taken 15+ years of filmmaking to give this world a single Christopher Nolan. But it seems it was worth it.

Nolan has written and directed the films like The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar, Inception or the recent release, Dunkirk. This guy is best known for his non-linear puzzled storytelling that grips the audience to their seats when they go and watch his films in theatres.

However, apart from his intimidating art of storytelling, there are certain patterns that he follows as a director and writer of the movie. For instance, you keep moving back and forth in time when you're watching his films. Apparently, what critics noticed in Dunkirk is different than this.

Have a look!

Well, you know already that it has something to do with Tom Hardy's face.

This time he wasn't hiding behind his beard or metal mask, but a pilot's oxygen mask that hardly showed his face, or let us say 80% of his face was covered in the entire film.

It showed in some instances though.

"I was pretty thrilled with what he did in The Dark Knight Rises with two eyes, a couple of eyebrows and a bit of forehead so I thought let's see what he can do with no forehead, no real eyebrows, maybe one eye."


He adds further, "Of course, Tom, being Tom, what he does with single eye acting is far beyond what anyone else can do with their whole body. That is just the unique talent of the man; he's extraordinary."

Omg! Did Nolan just confirm it's intentional?
