Tenet

Tenet

There's a scene at the end of the film where two of the lead characters are having a conversation primarily about paradoxes and plot while walking backwards away from each other, ever rising their volume to span the increasing distance and cut through the cacaphony of a helicopter. The screenwriter shoves a bit of humanity into the dialogue with the purpose of forging some connection between these two men, but it quickly becomes apparent that human connection is impossible, lost in the wind of the chasm, buried beneath words of logic and noises from intricate machinery. That's this movie, as cold and inert as a day-old bullet casing.

Note: this is my 2nd movie in the theater in the age of COVID-19, and it was somewhat interesting to be wearing a mask throughout while watching a film where characters are wearing masks 20% of the runtime.
