From @THR‘s #Tenet review: “Altogether, it makes for a chilly, cerebral film — easy to admire, especially since it’s so rich in audacity and originality, but almost impossible to love, lacking as it is in a certain humanity.” https://t.co/5eic2C0Vcr

I tried to write my TENET review as a palindrome, but got as far as “Good, it’s good” before realising I’d already failed. Big, beefy, convoluted spectacle, wider than it is deep, suit porn levels off the charts: I had fun. https://t.co/rnNpic1eGY

Tenet is a thrilling addition to the Christopher Nolan canon, but is slightly held back by a sense of over-familiarity.

TENET: The spinning top of INCEPTION and the endless void of INTERSTELLAR have nothing on the grand intrigue that is #TENET, Christopher Nolan’s most challenging film — and also his most satisfying. pic.twitter.com/F3qVc1qMBF

Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” review: There is enjoyably puzzling fun to be had along the way, but this sci-fi James Bond homage may have you pleading for an aspirin and a long lie-down https://t.co/nz2WjqNjGw

TENET is Christopher Nolan’s weirdest & most confusing film yet. What I mean to say is that I really dug it, it made me feel like a tiny baby floating in an endless universe https://t.co/dKfN4iFNd9

There comes a time where you watch a film that just nails every part of the characterisation, story, casting & soundtrack. And you’re in utter awe even though you shouldn’t be, because Christopher Nolan has never disappointed.

I loved it. It’s very timely. It has big ideas, although it is perhaps guilty of being a bit abstract in places.
Elizabeth DeBicki is fantastic. It does things that I’ve never seen on-screen before. It’s stunning.
I can’t wait to see it again.https://t.co/4gZP2DMwtc

The director first made an impact in 2001 with his indie film Memento. His next film, Insomnia, was also a modest hit. but it wasn’t until Batman Begins hit theaters in 2005 that Nolan became a box office force in his own right. The Prestige was Nolan’s last movie to gross under $200 million worldwide. His other films include The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Interstellar, and Dunkirk.
