Extractor. Architect. Forger. Chemist. Christopher Nolan’s transposition of recognisable careers into his film demonstrates how successful world-building can be founded upon the subversion of respectable professions into elements of a criminal network.

Does each ‘profession’ occupied by these characters show a darker side of these common, everyday jobs?
