"Don't try to understand it. Feel it"
He's done it again.
TENET is an ambitious, technicallly impressive, 2.5 hour shot of adrenaline.
Despite the countless mind-boggling set-pieces, and sci-fi jargon, TENET still has a good emotional core. The characters relationships develop in shocking or profound ways as the story progresses. After reading reviews, I went in expecting a full-on action flick, but was greatly surprised by the emotional weight the film carried. The expositional dialogue feels justified to me, but I don't think it will be for everyone.
Ludwig Göransson's score is out of this world good. Absolutely phenomenal work. The sound mixing isn't perfect, but I didn't have as many problems with it as other people did.
Nolan's direction and blocking of action sequences was very intriguing to me; shifting from pans, to handheld shakey-cam, conveying the action in a suspenseful, tense manner.
Washington, Pattinson, and Debicki all gave strong performances in their own right, but Kenneth Branagh truly surprised me.
TENET will bend your brain in half then blow it up in a matter of minutes.
