Johannes Duncker as a source[edit]

  • Is Johannes Duncker okay as a reliable source? christophernolan.net is obviously a fan site, but it looks classy. I checked other Nolan film articles and none use Duncker as a source, so I question whether we should here. Thoughts?

  • Eh, you're probably right. I think I was being a bit hasty with my sources there. But it's information that shouldn't be too hard to source from somewhere else. On a related note, what's the consensus regarding the use of DVD commentaries as a source? Because Nolan's commentary on Following is a goldmine.JMalky (talk) 15:56, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  • They are fair game. Use {{Cite video}} for the ref formatting.

  • Good because it looks like we'll have to draw on it heavily! There seems to be very little on the web about Following, and even less that definitely satisfies WP:RS. JMalky (talk) 19:59, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Budget in US dollars?[edit]

  • This is a British film, so why is the budget in US dollars? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Timtak (talkcontribs) 04:49, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
Presumably because it is a unit of currency used for international trade, or something. 67.149.192.84 (talk) 15:09, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

The name Danny Lloyd[edit]

I removed the speculative item about the origin of the name "Danny Lloyd" as coming from an actor in "The Shining". This does not seem to be true. According to the commentary on the DVD, the name was from David Lloyd a crewmember. David's credit card was used as a prop, but he did not want David to be used but he said that Danny was OK to go with the "D Lloyd" on the card.AbramTerger (talk) 16:18, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Why doesn't it say his name is Bill[edit]

Many times Cobb refers to the young man as Bill, so why doesn't this article name him as such? Are you not putting this in the article because he is credited as the Young Man? Unless somebody clarifies this I will make the appropriate revisions in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.38.205.9 (talk) 17:02, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

The young man tells Cobb that his name is Bill and tells the blonde that his name is Daniel Lloyd. Cobb's reaction to the name "Bill" seems to suggest that Cobb knows he is being lied to and that that it is not Bill. We learn at the end that D Lloyd is the name the young man took from the credit card and that he was also lying to the blonde. The credits confirm that we don't have a name for the young man and the article went with what he was credited as.AbramTerger (talk) 15:01, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
