How do you know I even like any of Nolan's movies, let alone this one? I could hate it. All I did was defend the idea that using recurring visuals and ideas in film is not only not lazy, but a very simple and basic way to communicate a theme, which is not a defense of the movie in some rabid "Nolanite" fashion. It's not a "Nolanite" reaction to say I understood the very basic way Nolan presented his story.

"The tone of my reply"? Calling me a Nolanite suggests I am some rabid fan that worships Nolan as a god. Your base your assumption entirely on my tone, when really you just mean I come off as an ass, which has nothing to do with Nolan fandom. Call me what you mean, don't make a word mean something else.

You misunderstood what I said. I said "I do not care" that I came off as condescending, because there was no other way to respond to such an inane and thoughtless response like "yawn", that suggested one did either not understand a basic concept, or was too juvenile to defend or even make a point in defense.
Fired up? Does that mean I can construct a defense weightier than "yawn"? Good.
