Tenet

Tenet ★★★★

As always, I am in awe of Nolan's ambition and the majority of the execution. I was fully with what was going on plot-wise (I think) until about 3/4 of the way through when I stopped being able to hear the majority of the dialogue (especially you, Aaron Taylor Johnson) and at that point I just kind of threw my hands up and tried to feel it instead. But I read the Wikipedia page after and I think I got the gist! But as complicated as the inversion stuff is, I felt disappointed by how thin and at times dull/overlong the plot was. It mostly does feel in service of the spectacle, which, as you may have read, is excellent. Certain sections go on needlessly and none of them top the opening, in my opinion. I don't know, I feel like I could really go either way. I agree with most of the positive and negative reviews. Glad to be back at the cinema.

I'll obviously have to see it again, but next time, I'd really like some subtitles.

So was it worth driving two hours to Connecticut for? Yes, but just barely.
