Tenet - 🥴

It should be my sort of film but everything I've heard about it says that you have to watch it twice in order to understand it - which makes me think there must be a problem somewhere if everyone is just coming out thinking "what the hell did I just watch?".

Either Christopher Nolan is a genius or he's disappeared up his own posterior somewhere along the line. I liked that Memento and Inception made the audience think in order to keep up with the film but this seems to just confuse everyone.

Inception was incredibly well made that it never really left you behind, but it certainly made you think. Tenet doesn’t make itself clear at many points at all. It’s difficult to explain, but while I could see how clever it wanted to be, it definitely needs some cleaning up with a bit more explaining for the majority if the audience. And much clearer dialogue. Do many characters doing Bane impressions

The Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix). 

Real life dramatisation from 60s era USA. 

I really enjoyed it is the main thing I would say... Its an interesting subject matter and very well made and watchable.

But... I think serious film buffs will find it oddly frothy and jovial considering the subject matter. For me too, the tone jumped around a bit so I was never fully gripped. The acting is likewise enjoyable but having so many famous actors is slightly distracting (Sacha Baron-Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Gordon Levitt, Anthony Mingella...for starters) and at times feels like an acting competition. 

So.. it never quite nails it's colours to the mast about what its intentions are, and feels slightly superficial and 'Hollywood'. Its a great film, one you could really enjoy watching on a date or with your parents.. but that also makes it a bit 'safe'. 

8/10
