Christopher Nolan Watches ‘Pather Panchali’ Says It's One of the ‘Best Films Ever Made,' Pledges to Watch More Indian Cinema

If it took him this long to watch Pather Panchali’ then I wonder what other classics he's missed over the years. That's kind of a high bar of quality though Mr. Nolan, 'Pather' is pretty much the apex of Indian cinema, anything after that goes downwards, but there's nevertheless tremendous jewels to uncover.
“I wanted to meet Indian filmmakers and learn more about India,” Nolan said. “I am looking forward to watching more Indian films in future. I have had the pleasure of watching [Satyajit] Ray’s ‘Pather Panchali’ recently, which I hadn’t seen before. I think it is one of the best films ever made. It is an extraordinary piece of work. I am interested in learning more about Indian film industry and that is the reason why I came.”
