I doff my flat cap to Cillian Murphy in the Peaky Blinders finale

Last Sunday night, almost four million people tuned in to witness Cillian Murphy signing off as Tommy Shelby – for now, at least. The finale of Peaky Blinders, which had spent much of the season hinting that it might do away with our antihero for good, instead opted to keep matters open, with a masterful twist that might as well have been an apology for all of the meandering routes it took to get there. (I can’t have been the only one wondering why the gangster-turned-MP, who remained handy with a firearm and loose with the law, still appeared to have more scruples and ethics than most of the bunch currently in charge of the country.) The final episode was a deserved reward for those of us who stuck with the show, during what I found to be a confusing last season.

Christopher Nolan movies are an experience. That experience differs from film to film, from person to person, from concept to concept — but you are always left changed in some way, wholly different from the moviegoer you were two hours before. He uses many tools to cast this spell on you: his dreamlike yet intricately structured writing, his similarly intoxicating directing style, the sheer scope and breadth of the production design of his worlds, just to name a few.
