Oppenheimer ★★★½

The pacing of this movie is exhausting, which wouldn’t be bad if it wasn’t three hours long. All of the Nolan hallmarks are here, including his fetish for not showing things chronologically, which doesn’t really pay off here in the way his other films have. There’s an incredible ensemble cast, though most are given very little screen time or character development. All that said, the buildup to the bomb test is riveting, despite all the political games that make up the rest of the film. Really great sound design, particularly immersive in Dolby.
