Creepy intimacy, plenty of suspense, and a few surprises enliven this black-and-white treat from the director of "Memento". Bill is a struggling writer who fills his time and mind by following random strangers he sees on the street. After breaking his own rule ("never follow the same person twice") he becomes fascinated by Cobb, a voyeur who takes things one step further--actually breaking into people's homes to sift through their things. As you might expect, the relationship soon becomes unhealthy. Writer-director Christopher Nolan already reveals a sure hand in this early neo-noir work. Like "Memento", "Following" toys with timelines, jumping back and forth and carefully dropping bits of information exactly when they're needed. Short and sharp, "Following" features an intriguing plot line and fine, understated performances by the entire cast. Don't miss it. "--Ali Davis"
