Doodlebug turns on itself

23 Mar


Christopher Nolan has become one of the most popular directors in the world with his Batman trilogy and success of his thriller, Inception, but audiences can trace his affinity for complex mind-bending material back to his black and white short film, Doodlebug. A man is tormented in his apartment by a mysterious pest. He attempts to flatten this pesky rodent with the heal of his shoe. The title reveals more to audiences than is first expected because the idea of a doodle continuing to move outward and growing with every turn is a powerful metaphor that Nolan cleverly explores. Doodlebug turns on itself and leaves audiences looking over their shoulders for their own doodlebugs.
