Nolan is more a story teller than a film maker. He is a fantastic story teller. Maybe that's why you struggle with his dialogue / narrative heavy films. There is usually a lot of ground to cover in his films. The dialogue isn't remedial or corny in anyway, like say from Batman Returns - Batman and Robin. It can be dialogue heavy at times, but it isn't bad dialogue. So it's all winning.
Drive was an awesome movie, by the way. But I also know people, specifically my girlfriend who went to it with me couldn't stand it ... it was almost too quite for her.
