Tenet ★★★★½

"You 're only halfway there, I'll see you at the beginning, friend."

A year later and the movie is still murdering my ears. Spielberg's AI is the most essential piece of sci-fi as far as this century is concerned but this is the most revolutionary: Poetically mechanical and mechanically poetic; Nolan fucking around with all of cinema's components to fight the future FOR the future, moving images informed by cinematic history(from Melies to 60s Bond) travelling to the past with the speed of light. A sort of anti-murphy's law, a beautiful and romantic mess of a movie that I really, deeply love. Fuck destiny, faith is might. A new cinema awaits...
