    Tenet

    ★★½

    I consider myself a fan of Christopher Nolan's films. I love how ambitious his films can be, even to a fault and sometimes to the detriment of the audience or the film itself.

The standouts for me were Ana de Armas and Daniel Craig. Armas has been very good in her previous films, but this is her breakout performance. Her character Marta is fully realized and sympathetic without every falling into parody or a…
