Tenet ★★★★★

“We live in a twilight world.”

Posterity. Inversion. Tenet. It’s all masterful, it’s all intricate, it’s all genius, it’s all immaculate.

Christopher Nolan’s magisterial direction, vision, spectacle and storytelling at a high point of visceral, cerebral, thrilling success.

It is revolutionary honestly and I just can’t wait for Ludwig Göransson to become Nolan’s go-to composer for his films because Göransson’s work here is among the best of Nolan’s films, tied up there with Hans Zimmer’s Interstellar.

The kind of filmmaking I want to carry out to craft the kind of cinema I want to make, forming the kind of filmmaker I want to be.

Laura: From your point of view, you caught it. But from the bullet’s point of view, you dropped it.
The Protagonist: The cause comes before effect.
Laura: No. That’s just the way we see time.
The Protagonist: Well, what about free will?
Laura: That bullet would never have moved if you hadn’t put your hand there. Either way we run the tape, you made it happen. Don’t try to understand it. Feel it.
The Protagonist: Instinct. Got it.
