Another couple of films yesterday:
First I watched Limitless which is a vaguely SF film with Bradley Cooper where he basically starts taking some drug to make himself smarter. Overall I thought it was decent, although for a supposed smart guy he did some really stupid things IMO.
After that I watched Christopher Nolan's freshman film, Following...which is about an aspiring writer who would randomly follow people that ends up getting caught up in some nefarious activities. He makes rather extensive use of flashbacks/flash forwards in the film without much to give you a sense of order, so that you end up having to work out for yourself in what order things are happening. I suppose one could compare it to Memento in that sense, although I felt Memento was way more structured. Overall a good film, although you can tell it's an early, low-budget work.
