Tenet ★★½

Well Nolan's kinda lost his mind (again) yet I've never seen him so composed. This has so much happening and tries to tackle so many different subplots but he never stopped to make it emotionally resonant or even engaging. There's just topics like abuse, existentialism, the apocalypse etc. that are just thrown into the film without any care or second glance.

The abuse/misogynist undertones is not something Nolan has any skill in tackling and just feels like emotionless window dressing. With saying this i didn't outright hate this, there's enough insanity to keep me invested. Nolan still has some of his trust fund baby paranoia and the film is a bit of a satire of itself.

At the end of the day this is just a boring and empty version of Southland Tales with a kino Robert Pattinson performance. So if that sounds like a good time to you, watch the damn thing.
