Tenet

I guess it's only right that this is the first film I've seen in the cinema since March being an ex Nolan fanboy... or maybe I'm still currently one because I see myself forgiving him for the same criticisms every time he comes out with a new film. The score being louder than the dialogue, characters lacking human emotion etc.

Hoyte van Hoytema at this point really knows his way around an IMAX camera and it shows. The images he can capture on this is some of the best cinematography I've seen all year. IMAX in a way is perfect for this kind of Nolan film as the characters don't feel human and the IMAX camera is unable to get in close to capture those actual human emotions, opting instead for you to just look at the broader image.

But the more that I see Nolan films like Tenet and Dunkirk, the more I want to see him go back to his roots and make an intimate character study again.
