Christopher Nolan on Why He Won’t Make Comedies: “There’s No Hiding Behind the Art of the Film”

“I would try anything I think except comedy or romantic comedy. Those are very tough genres to work in. They rely on an unanimity of audience response. You screen a comedy for people, and if they don’t laugh, you’ve got to figure out a way to make them laugh. There’s no hiding behind the art of the film. There’s [no] ‘Oh, you don’t get it.'”

Writer/director Christopher Nolan explains why he has no intention to make a comedy in a new interview with USA Today.
