Today I've been to the cinema for the first time since, well, at least last winter. To see Tenet.
This being a Christopher Nolan movie, I thought it would be good to see it on the big screen. Well, let's say if there is any place to see this movie it is on the big screen. Because optics is all it has. Seriously, this movie left me so lost I was not even confused. The plot does not even try to make sense, it's all just an exercise in visual style. And at that, it's not even that spectacular, the action is strangely subdued.
I think I have to watch Memento again as a therapy or something...
What sent me over the edge is watching my fellow countryman do the Nazi salute. Now this is of course a movie and a lot of this may have been prompted to be done by the directors and producers, but that scene can easily not be faked. There's dozens of videos around the country of right wing groups doing just that and wishing death on those that don't agree with them. I get this was supposed to be a pretend documentary/ sell daughter to rich American so she can have a golden cage, which itself is easily a joke for the movie. The other stuff, hard to disconnect from reality.Watched that too when it came out. Tbh I’m not good with cringey movies like that, but I expected it to be much worse!
I hate Illinois Nazis.What sent me over the edge is watching my fellow countryman do the Nazi salute.
