Tenet ★★★★

man i could barely follow the plot after the halfway point but this was the coolest!! nolan's typical ambivalence towards his characters' psychology reaches its apotheosis here in favor of blistering spectacle. feels a lot like a great video game in that it starts small in introducing its concepts, and gradually introduces more mechanics before becoming unforgivingly dense. in a lot of ways this is a 'theme park movie' which i mean lovingly. glad i watched this at home so i didnt have to hide my ear to ear smile under a mask!
