Thread: Tenet (Christopher Nolan)

    There are a lot of thematic similarities between TDKR and A Tale of Two Cities, and he based much of the plot around it.

    I don't know why that's a bad thing.
    If Nolan knew how to tell a story (a different matter than devising convoluted structures whose complexity is their only purpose), that is if he knew what Dickens knew, he wouldn't have to go reaching for his Penguins Classics every other reel in order to inject enough pseudo-profundity into his movie-like contraptions to intimidate the spectator into thinking they've seen a Very Serious Work of Art.
    Just because...
    The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (Lewis Milestone, 1946) mild
    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (Jason Woliner, 2020) cold
    Sword of Doom (Okamoto Kihachi, 1966) cold

    The last book I read was...
    Underworld by Don DeLillo

    I wonder if it stands up to scrutiny.
    There are certain moments that make me doubt it. When he shoots at the target, the bullet comes out of the target and back into the gun. So where did that target come from? When they set it up, was it already riddled with bullets? Maybe a minor anomaly, but it makes me pause.

    Perhaps it was simply a clue discovered by the Tenet Organization. The bad guys were messing around there, and Tenet discovered it. And figured out what was occurring.

    Thought some more on this. The very nature of this concept means it's kinda above most critique as it enters into paradoxes and such. It'll drive you mad if you're hell bent on figuring it out. Although I don't mind trying to figure out whatever I can.

    By the way, there's talk online [

    Also did not realize it's [
    ] That Kat's lover was called Arepo (read carefully), and that the name Rotas (read carefully) also appears in the movie although those instances mean diddly squat, except...

    ...There really is a thing called a Sator square, the oldest datable representation of the Sator Square was found in the ruins of Pompeii, Wiki says:

    My opinion is that the concept of inversion as shown in this movie is really, really, really dumb. It does not make a lick of sense.
