He even shared that his favorite installment of the saga is “Fast & Furious: Tokyo Race.” Nolan expressed that he does not feel guilty about enjoying these movies and finds them to be quite fun, especially as the series develops a more specific mythological arc in the later installments.
This is not the first time Nolan has expressed his passion for the franchise. In 2020, he mentioned that he has a special place in his heart for “Tokyo Race” and finds the later versions of the films to be quite enjoyable.
Despite being known for taking risks in his films, Nolan is someone who enjoys consuming all types of cinema. According to Emily Blunt, who worked with Nolan on “Oppenheimer,” the filmmaker watches all genres of films and never talks negatively about other people’s movies. Blunt commented that Nolan understands the difficulty of directing a great movie.
It’s evident that Nolan appreciates a wide variety of cinematic experiences and is not averse to enjoying big-budget popcorn flicks like the “Fast & Furious” franchise. This shows that even acclaimed filmmakers can have an appreciation for different types of cinema.
