Tenet ★★½

Nolan succeeded in making a real cinematic paradox with Tenet. Sluggish and overlong overall, but rushed and thin in many scenes. Dense with ideas, exposition, sci-fi babble, fleeting philosophical musings, but a hollow construction in regards to every other aspect of the plot. Incredibly convoluted, almost maliciously so, but exceedingly flat and uncreative with its spy-game trappings. A few sequences that thrill and excite with their use of the inversion concept, while the rest of its action is messy, weightless, lacking intensity.

Upon rewatch, I have to consider this Nolan’s worst film; the section from the highway through Oslo 2.0 is legitimately fantastic though.
