Tenet ★★

Watched it again. This time through headphones and I understood about 50% more of the dialogue. Also started to fall asleep a little this time.

After talking with my brother and my friend, we parsed out the plot. It's a very simple plot told in the most convoluted and complicated way possible. Definitely up its own ass trying to outsmart everyone.

And it does that thing that Nolan did in INTERSTELLAR with characters keeping crucial information to pad the runtime and add dramatic effect. It's was annoying then, but it's unbearable here.

A whole star less upon this rewatch.
