Tenet (dir. Christopher Nolan, 2020)

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Per Deadline:

It also has added Michael Caine, Dunkirk‘s Kenneth Branagh, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Clémence Poésy to and ensemble cast topped by John David Washington along with Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki.

The film, Nolan’s first feature since 2017’s Oscar-nominated Dunkirk, is being described as an action epic evolving around the world of international espionage. He wrote the original screenplay and shooting spanning seven countries is now underway. The Tenet team includes Dunkirk‘s director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema (shooting in a mix of Imax and 70mm)

Which all seems rather involved for a biopic about Neil Tennant.

What if at the midpoint of the movie it plays out in reverse for the remainder of its runtime, wouldn't that be something?

What if you get to the title screen and then out of nowhere an errant 'H' drops from the top of the frame into the title and before you know what happened you realize you're watching a remake.

It could be a decent and timely film ala Syriana if it really focuses on the guy who approved the CIA's rendition and secret interrogations/torture program.

things in every chuck nolan movie ever

1. oscar-winning actress playing a character with no motivation, whose sole purpose is to deliver exposition
2. The message of the movie is based on a proverb that the audience is familiar with. It is stated out loud by the main character, but is not actually supported by the internal logic of the film.

Tenet as the test of whether movie theaters can open this year.

The studio is pressing ahead with release plans for “Tenet,” the mysterious and much-anticipated new movie from “Inception” director and proven moneymaker Christopher Nolan. Executives are making plans to open the movie widely across the United States as scheduled on July 17 amid the ongoing spread of the coronavirus. They’re going through all the paces of a big summer release, despite many reasons a successful rollout may not be remotely possible.

Chris also doesn’t allow chairs. I worked with him twice. He doesn’t allow chairs, and his reasoning is, if you have chairs, people will sit, and if they’re sitting, they’re not working.

Inside the movie set of a talentless, peevish tory-cunt schoolmaster! Thing is I refuse sit down for any of his his movies, because not only do they feel like work - they are fucking irredeemable shite.

Yes, "Come see this new movie - the director's a huge fucking asshole" is a time-tested marketing strategy. Seems likely to have the same marketing power as when the DVD case for some straight-to-video no-stars garbage pile says "From the Producers of [HIT MOVIE LOTS OF PEOPLE LIKED]".

There is no way this is true. Unions alone, etc. But there is something hilarious about the notion. I can imagine all his stars working rest into their scenes. "You know, Chris, I really think my character would be sitting in this shot." "Hey, Chris, what if my character smoked, but was also narcoleptic?"

Nolan is, on the other hand, one of those directors who insists on wearing a suit. (Others I can think of are, of all people, Sam Raimi and Paul Feig; Feig has claimed a good suit means you can always find a place to use the bathroom). It's an interesting strategy. A lot of directors seem to go the other way, kind of scraggly, with beards. I have a friend who is a professor who is clean shaven during the breaks, but grows a beard for class, because it makes him look older and gets him more respect. But a director wearing a suit ... it scans as affectation, which might counterintuitively get you less respect. Now, a chicken suit, that might work, at least once. It's so silly it could diffuse tension, which might make up for Nolan not letting people sit.

Paul Verhoeven apparently filmed a few scenes in his birthday suit.

taken a half-formed idea and built an action movie around it because he thinks a particular effect looks cool

i thought this was an interesting comment because that's how i've always assumed predator happened! some cgi wonk figured out how to do the active camouflage effect and they figured out a movie around it. and despite that, it's one of the best movies ever, definitely in my sci fi top 10, and the sequel definitely in the top 20. i don't have any proof this is how predator actually happened, just guessing here, but i imagine there's at least a few good sci fi / fantasy / horror movies where the effect came first and they built the film around it.

still haven't seen tenet, as a physics teacher and spy movie fan who can tolerate nolan for the most part i was pretty excited for this. i really like the concept of a bond movie built around reversing the flow of entropy, sad to hear that this movie apparently sucks so bad

it is funny to me though that ppl in the future can figure out how to break the most basic law of thermodynamics (ie reverse the direction of entropy) but ... can't solve global warming? you'd figure if you can reverse the flow of heat you could probably work out how to cool down the earth without needing to obliterate it?!?

This whole film reminded me of a time when i was at a hotel and this guy came over and started aggressively hitting on my date and was doing sleight of hand close up magic and every time he finished a trick he stared at me like "HOW ABOUT THAT?!?!" and after the third trick and the third time he asked "any idea how that happened? want to see it again?" I said "i take it you practice this stuff a lot" and he found that simultaneously offensive and boring and went to get my date drinks and i think we left.

i'm very glad I didn't pay money to see this in a theater. it was groanworthy. and how this is Nolan's most expensive film is beyond me; I guess blowing things up costs a lot, but it wasn't visually stunning at all. Dunkirk, Interstellar, and Inception are all more interesting to look at (as well as being better movies)

this may piss some of you off but the early-on realization for me watching this was the sensation fo sitting through a 2 1/2 hour Hideo Kojima intro. Same tangential connections to common sense, knotty dialogue, pointless relationships, pseudo-intellectual intrigues but none of the actual gameplay.

This is bone dry and so demanding of an audience to put in the work for what exactly? It’s a lot of algebra for a fucking Bond film.

I stuck with it for the spectacle. Practical effects shit is neat, especially on this level. Pattinson the only memorable human in this.

The dialogue in this film, when it's not buried under layers of sound, is insane. It's so clipped and freighted with information it's like every conversation is between two people with a lifetime of shared history and semiotics, even when they've only just met. (Which, I suppose, is technically true given the nature of the relationships.) If you replaced each line with a functional description you wouldn't lose that much:

"Threat of violence"
"Sardonic response"
"Promise of violence"
"Cryptic allusion"
"Offer of a deal"

With dialogue that brittle though, if you lose even one word in twenty the whole thing quickly becomes incomprehensible. I had no idea what was going on with the plutonium 241, what The Protagonist's deal with Sator was meant to be. I like that this thread barely deals with the mechanics of the story but here's some other things that confused me, without even getting into the reverse entropy:

What was going on with the opera house siege (who were the terrorists, who were our guys rescuing, who were the other fake cops, what was the piece of the algoremuffin doing in the cloakroom)?
Why did he go and live in a wind turbine?
Why did he need all that subterfuge to meet the scientist, couldn't they just have set up an appointment?
The scientist says we don't know how to reverse entropy but by the end they're doing it left right and centre
Why did Priya Singh want Sator to assemble the algoremuffin?

Also the soundtrack was doing so much work generating tension and emotion in the action scenes, feels like cheating.

If it wasn't for the dazzling production values, this film would be in so bad it's good territory, and I think it will be seen as such once the superficial lustre has faded. A colossal misfire.

The entropy reversal is a pretty neat idea - if you like that kind of thing - but I don't know if you could ever make a movie with it that would appeal to people who don't fancy multiple rewatches and drawing timelines and the like.

Since the other Synchronic mention is in the post-2005 horror thread, adding here due to above comments. Liked this a lot. The jump edits worked well with the theme, and the characters were sympathetic and decently acted. Lots of cool images. Look forward to their next film. It's on Hoopla, for anyone using that US library app.
