Tenet ★★★

Did they fix the sound mixing?

I actually understood most of this a second time around. Not necessarily the mechanics of the inversion, but I was actually able to comprehend the direction of the plot and the motivation of the characters to do what they were doing. 

With that added luxury, I was able to pick up on a lot I disliked that I didn’t notice the first time. The wardrobe is terrible, particularly on JDW. The editing at times is horrific - people talking with their face not moving and vice versa. None of the performances are much good (which isn’t atypical of a Nolan). But the biggest drawback by far is the dialogue. It’s terrible. The quick lines being thrown back and forth are so childish. Nobody talks like that.
