cinephile,

Somehow, I am not surprised you suggested this poll.

I will have to think about this, since Nolan's villains are multilayered and tend to be sympathetic to the audience.

I agree with some movies, I don't even ask myself who is the villain but while making this poll I had a lot of trouble with those movies. Especially with his early movies.

Following: I hesitated, but I decided that Jeremy Theobald his an unnamed character is less dangerous and evil than Cobb.

Insomnia:  Will Dormer is far from the perfect hero, but he redeems himself at the end of the movie while Finch is manipulative and dangerous during the entire movie.

Memento: It was so hard to make a decision for Memento because the character is manipulating himself, he is both the villain and a victim.

I'm sure you know 'Memento' better than I do, and i haven't seen it in a long time, but I remember Leonard as the protagonist: I know one can be protagonist and villain, too, but I remember Teddy as being the villain. Am I forgetting something? If so, maybe use a spoiler alert for Leonard?

Leonard is the protagonist and the villain like Angier in The Prestige, Teddy in Memento, and Borden in The Prestige are antagonists but not really villains.

I included the poster of Memento instead of the image of Leonard to avoid spoilers.

I'm sure I wrote a paragraph here about how I sympathised with Angier and rooted for him till the end and ranted about how Borden(s) represent everything that is wrong with this world and bla bla bla.

Must have hallucinated it. :o

Do you want to hold this poll until then? Or do you want to add Tenet in a re-push then?

I deleted the precedent response because I changed my mind. I have kept up to date with news articles and it seems that Tenet has good chances of releasing in Summer.

I replaced him at the last position to reduce his number of votes.

I think a spoiler warning in the description would be appropriate.

I added a spoiler alert in the description.

I finally decided to put the picture of Leonard instead of the poster.

If I put a poster for him, I would have to put a poster for Miranda, Finch, and Mann. People are gonna vote for the movies and the poll is gonna be meaningless.

R.I.P. 

Heath Ledger's Joker won by a landslide despite being at the bottom of the list.
