Re: Tenet User Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

I don't think he does a bad job writing women. Compared to most female characters in Hollywood films in recent years, I will take his fractured, abusive, damsel in distress or tormented female characters over the Mary Sue perfect idealized women we see in Hollywood studio films. But there also is no...

Re: Tenet User Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

You know, this really is the first Nolan film that... A prominent female role isn’t killed off, villainized, rendered helpless, or outright neglected. Catwoman, Dr Brand, Murph, Juno in Inception, Hilary Swank in Insomnia Dr Brand is rendered helpless at the end. Even Debicki is mostly just a helpl...

Re: Tenet - Box Office Discussion/Speculation

Don’t really think it’s Nolans job to dumb things down for the audience. If anything, I think Hollywood has dumbed their films down so much that Tenet could be considered “inaccessible” to today’s audiences. Anyways, I’m glad he didn’t dumb things down as much as he could’ve because it resulted in a...

Re: Tenet Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

Especially considering Interstellar was his lowest rated film in a long time by critics and yet general audiences loved it immensely and many people consider it one of their personal favorite films ever. Nolan has always cared mostly about the theater experience and how general audiences respond an...

Re: Tenet Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

I dont't think Nolan gives one flying f*** about raitings on RT, MC or whatever. He knew exactly that he would get backlash from critics just for releasing the film under these circumstances - especially in the US where every single issue gets politicised. When you make a 90mio $ WWII arthousish fi...

Re: Tenet Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

David Sims (of The Atlantic) rated it very highly on his Letterboxd. Not sure if we will see a review from them though.
