Nolan is a true devotee to the ‘real’ and practical elements of film. His faithfulness to creating worlds and characters based on reality engenders an insatiable appetite for his work in the palates of audiences.

The colour can be used as a motif, an occurring manifestation in which the shades themselves become an important part of the story, reflecting emotions, altering situations and underlining scenes. (Bordwell, Thompson and Smith, n.d.) Eduard Grau, the director of photography of A Single Man, creates a specific palette for the film.

The whole movie is one big extravaganza of sound design techniques which is demonstrated in key moments of the ploy like the scene where Wall-E nearly walks on the small bug at the entry to Wall-E home to where Wall-E and Eve escape from the Axiom ship which lead into the quickly and seamlessly into the Wall-E and Eve dance sequence display to the mother ship end a tender moment.
