Tenet

Tenet ★★

Nolan’s least enjoyable movie yet - a radical experiment to create a movie consciously without wit, emotion, ideas, and personality (with the Elizabeth Debicki subplot tacked on seemingly as a concession). A very long trip for a short day at the beach. I would propose that a movie this crammed with exposition that is also this hard to follow is actually an example of bad storytelling. The novelty of seeing stuff move backwards wears off quickly. I’m unconcerned that I didn’t “get it” because I have in the past grappled with real art.
