    $200 million for "Underwater" would have really been something

    Honestly though, with how monopolized the theatrical film industry is, it would still feel refreshing if something like Underwater had that kind of budget.

    I would be thrilled by that...but not for a movie that seems to be underpromoted and getting dumped in Q1.

    So Elizabeth Debicki totally dies in this, right? Maybe brought back to life, but the Nolan TM remains...

    Medem's Los Amantes del círculo polar is pretty wonderful, although after re-seeing it recently for the first time in more than fifteen years, I'm no longer convinced it's a masterpiece--in large part because the film's intricate narrative structure and formal patterning ultimately overwhelm its characters.
    Just because...
    The Color Wheel (Alex Ross Perry, 2011) mild
    Argo (Ben Affleck, 2012) mild
    Impostors (Mark Rappaport, 1979) mild

    The last book I read was...
    Politics, Porn and Protest: Japanese Avant-Garde Cinema in the 1960s and 1970s by Isolde Standish

    Nolan: so the entire movie is scenes but in reverse.
    Crew: so the movie is...backward?
    Nolan:No the scenes are forward, but the next scene is the scene before it.
    Crew: fuck...we did it!

    Nolan: okay so the movie is in dream layers where time gets more fuckered the more layers you go
    Crew: you mean like...?
    Nolan: also spin the whole set and the city rolls over too
    Crew: holy shit!......we did it!

    Nolan: ok so the movie is about space travel and relativity and time and gravity....
    Crew: yeah we got this chris

    Nolan: ALRIGHT YOU MOTHER FUCKERS

    The Nolan trailer that will finally make trans crack and run screaming into the night:

    Nolan appears onscreen a la Hitchcock.

    Nolan: "Time...."

    Audience hold its breath.

    Nolan: "...shenanigans."

    Audience loses its mind. Several are crying in ecstatic joy. One person enters catatonia after telling someone to wake them when the movie premieres. In the distance, the low braaaamming peals of angels are heard.

    So...the bad guys are time travellers, whose actions appear to be in reverse to ours.

    John David Washington has the ability to see and react to the future/past actions of these baddies, hence why he is able to "catch" bullets with his gun, and competently fight them?

    This trailer has nearly undone all my predictions I posted about the first trailer. I think you're on the right course.

    Meaning...?
    Character A: Let's talk about Christopher Nolan's films.
    Character B: The British director Christopher Nolan, who made his debut with Following and then made a big splash with Memento?
    Character A: That's right. That's the guy.
    Character B: Oh, I like him. He also made the Batman trilogy with Christian Bale.
    Character A: American Psycho Christian Bale? The guy who first came to the public's attention in Steven Spielberg's The Empire of the Sun, which was set during the Japanese invasion of China and based on the life of JG Ballard?
    Character B: The very same. Anyway, you were saying about British director Christopher Nolan?
    Character A: Yes, the movie director Christopher Nolan. Are you familiar with how a movie is made?
    Character B: Walk me through it.
    Character A: Well, often a movie will start with a screenplay. A screenplay is a piece of writing that acts as a template for a visual medium.
    Character B: Like, words on a page?
    Character A: Yes.
    Character B: Wow. And these words describe the action and the dialogue of the intended visual medium, whether it be a movie or -
    Character A: - or TV. That's right. Someone writes this screenplay and then the director directs it.
    Character B: Directs it, meaning....?
    Character A: You know, sets up the scene, guides the actors, makes the words come to life.
    Character B: Not literally.
    Character A: What?
    Character B: Like the words do not literally come to life. That is a physical impossibility.
    Character A: That is correct. It is a physical impossibility.
    Character B: I knew it.
    Character A: Anyway, as you mentioned earlier, these screenplays contain dialogue.
    Character B: All of them?
    Character A: Well, here's what's interesting - the screenplays for silent movies often do not have dialogue.
    Character B: Huh, that makes sense I guess. So you were say-


    TEN MINUTES LATER

    Character A: ....... and the fact that his dialogue is banal and overly expository is one of the hallmarks of British movie director Christopher Nolan.
    Character B: *stares pensively*

    There should be something like that for Nolan detractors but it's a losing game.
