Leon Brill 👽’s review published on Letterboxd:
When were you during the time war?
Gotta say I was confused during a lot of this and wasn’t fully on board until we start going in reverse. Once the movie hits that point it really finds its stride and the end is just incredible. It’s technically a marvel and the time warp shit is just genius in how meticulously it had to be planned out.
Could totally use another 20 mins in its first act to help us understand the characters and what’s going on a bit more. As it stands the first 40mins-1hr clips along really fast leaving the audience without time to breathe or get their bearings for the world. In reverse (a repeat viewing) this would all be fine though. Tenet really loses out on not having audiences able to easily see it a second time.
