Tenet ★★

Nolan at his most bare-bones, filmmaking reduced to formalism in the negative and destructive sense. Soulless and vapid, enjoyable only to the extent of tracing the end of this red string of fate — or "reality," as Neil termed it, alongside a metaphysical statement that discloses also the film's ideological stance. I'd rather die in a labyrinth with no walls, rather than spend my energy navigating a tesseract-shaped one.

(And Dad left halfway through.)
