Abstract
The paper begins with an overview of stylistic and narrative features of Nolan’s films (tracing his sources of influence), which consistently reveals their explicit psychological motivation. The bulk of the paper thus consists of a psychological analysis of three films (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Inception) as examples of Nolan’s exploration of human subjectivity. The films are primarily analysed in a Lacanian framework, but some other psychological approaches (Zimbardo, neuroscience) are used to reinforce the argument. Lacanian registers of the symbolic and the Real are used to discuss Nolan’s exploration of the relation between the individual and society. Special attention is given to Nolan’s use of classical myth (legendary Caesar, architect Ariadne) as these intertextual references play a significant role in the structure of The Dark Knight and Inception, respectively.
