Tenet

Tenet ★★★★

"Don't try to understand it."

Understanding is an extreme understatement in this case, with parts unfolding only to close back up again, washing over the viewer, lost in a morass of partial glimpses of what is to come (or what already happened). Unlike the "whoa" moments of INCEPTION or THE MATRIX, there's nothing to really "whoa" here as comprehension is only secondary to clockwork plotting and baffling but exciting execution. And while it might draw some very apt comparisons to something like LOOPER, it's probably more like the action version of STALKER, no need to 100% comprehend what's going on, just marvel that it exists.

And was not expecting Pattinson to go "Full British" in this one.
