Tenet ★★½

The dad "I'm so confused" count: 5.

Both Dunkirk and Tenet are unabashedly Nolan: cold, not much characterization, and a complex use of time. In Dunkirk, these traits work well to create a harrowing experience true to war. In Tenet, with the last trait turned up to 100, it's confusing, with nothing human at it's core. And to make up for his big concepts at play, we get other classic Nolanisms that weren't present in Dunkirk: lots of exposition and half-baked messages.

I am the viewer. And I was underwhelmed.

Best part was when my dad said I guess we should be watching in reverse.
