Tenet (2020) - in cinemas from Wednesday, August 26
“This was clearly made for Nolan fans, through and through, they will love every single minute of it and it’s also his best movie since Inception.” Tenet first reactions have landed, heaping praise on Christopher Nolan’s latest movie, following “highly secretive” press screenings.
Tenet is a practically perfect (re)introduction to the big screen. Whether audiences are ready – where safe – to return to cinemas en masse is another question entirely. Certainly, Tenet’s a more challenging film than some may be comfortable with after a five-month absence, but this is an all-too-rare example of a master filmmaker putting everything on the table with, you sense, not a modicum of his vision compromised. The stakes have never been higher, but Tenet is exactly the film cinemas need right now.
Armed with only one word – Tenet – and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion.
The critics say Tenet is “very much a time-travel movie” done in a complex way. They also praised the “stunning” locations, while adding that the final scene will need many rewatches. Many feel Tenet is “far better” than both Inception and Interstellar, the main reason being that there is a lack of exposition and excellent acting from the likes of John David Washington and Robert Pattinson. Plus the inversion element isn’t too complicated to follow and “you can actually follow this movie and not get too lost.”
