Tenet ★★★½

I feel I might be reading too much into this, but here goes - I think this is Nolan’s most personal film. I think here he’s struggling to reconcile giving people what they expect and his own love of film as a form of expression. Like the convolutions of the plot, there are many layers - not all of which Nolan seems to grasp, but all of which he seems to want to address. A very dense and strange film, that demands multiple viewings, but not, I feel, for obvious reasons. An orchestra, interrupted by violence, before ever playing the first note. To feel, not to understand. Breaking free of what holds you in place and makes you suffer a static, stilted life. Escaping time. Themes that permeate everything. I for one support Nolan and his relentless quest to leave a lasting mark on cinema.
