"Super brief but efficient, Following represents director Christopher Nolan's burgeoning talent in tight filmmaking and hard-edge noir."
Rotten Tomatoes

"Christopher Nolan's noirish thriller is an uncommonly polished and assured feature debut, highly clever textually and supremely accomplished technically. This ultra low-budget exercise marks the emergence of a significant directorial talent."
The Hollywood Reporter

"It's an ambitious undertaking, this mix of Mamet and Godard, and it is to Nolan's credit that he takes it on so early in his cinematic career."
Chicago Sun-Times

"Before Memento, his breakthrough picture, Christopher Nolan made an impressive debut with the modest, short, but captivating film noir, Following."
Emanuel Levy

"Unlike some other flicks that have had this sort of labyrinthine structure, Nolan's made sure that everything works..."
Reel Film Reviews

"Christopher Nolan has crafted a spare but gripping black-and-white neo-noir debut feature that features some classic elements of the genre."
