"Why I don't use CGI," Christopher Nolan explains during this interview.

Christopher Nolan is known for producing and directing some of the most incredible movies ever to hit cinemas, think Interstellar, Batman Begins, Dunkirk, Inception and his latest movie Tenet, which is in cinemas now.

Christopher Nolan explained, during an interview with Stephen Smith from the BBC at the BFI London Film Festival, that he doesn't use much CGI in his movies at all, which might come as quite a surprise as his movies are very sci-fi, fantasy based and themed.

Christopher Nolan's reasoning for not using much CGI in his films is because he says it takes the fun out of movie and film making. He adds that using less green screen techniques helps to make the movie appear a lot more realistic. He uses CGI specifically to add the final touches here and there to give it that completed and final look.
