Tenet ★★★

Early on, as she explains reverse entropy, Tenet’s lynchpin, a character drily states that it’s probably best we try not to understand it. And certainly Nolan’s latest contains enough head scratching bewilderment for that piece of advice to be taken seriously. If Inception was a heist of the mind, then Tenet is a time heist, with chronology and physics being altered within a globetrotting adventure flick. There’s a certain thrill seeing cinema being reverse engineered. However, much like a deconstruction of your favourite dessert, the regular dish is often more satisfying.
