Probably but not something we can say for sure since we haven’t watched Tenet. I mean, judging by Nolan’s work on Dunkirk, this movie could be way different than what we expect really and he might be continuing his experimental approach to a further extent with Tenet perhaps (I know, I realize this is a movie with more limitations for a studio given its nature, budget, etc.). Although I’m thinking this because I remember Nolan saying something about how Dunkirk had an effect on how he works with his projects.A Borges man wrote: ↑June 13th, 2020, 3:53 amI'm 99% sure it was the 2001 print. I mean, it depends if we are talking about a Nolan film in competition or outside? Because there have been a lot of ridiculous movies that went to Canne out of competition: Godzilla (98), The Fifth Element, Kung Fu Panda, X-Men: the last Stand....Shrek. Having Tenet go to Canne is kind of meaningless. Also, having a bunch of sunbaked, pretentious, french film critics have the first look at Tenet would suck...they don't deserve it, they would probably trash it.Paradoxicalparabola wrote: ↑June 13th, 2020, 3:22 amYes.

The Cannes director is a big fan of Nolan,(they invited him back in 2018) and asked Nolan for Tenet to be apart of Cannes but, Tenet wasn't ready in time. He also mentioned how Nolan told him he cast JDW after the Cannes Blackkklansman screening as we found out a few weeks ago.
I do agree with other people here on how Dunkirk was a film that could’ve been screened at Cannes considering it had a more arthouse approach. Although if you ask me, some elements of art films have always been part of Nolan’s work. Anyways, not a big deal either but good to see Nolan gets some respect from recognized figures at Cannes.
