Tenet ★★★½

makes a lot more sense the second time around and now i have a much more solid opinion on it. it's not quite the masterpiece some have hailed it as and not quite the incomprehensible mess others have called it, but it's still quite the cinematic experience (at least in theaters). it may be unnecessarily complex with unbearable sound mixing and exposition-filled dialogue, but it makes up for it (in my opinion) with a great score that uniquely incorporates reversed instrumentation during inverted segments, great performances from the main cast, and some genuinely epic action scenes that only nolan is capable of. it may not be worth getting covid-19 over, but tenet is a pretty good time! (the second time)
