Re: Trailer #2

Fun fact - according to the guys who made it, this trailer is called...MOBIUS https://jaxfilm.com/films/tenet/ Interesting. That only makes me wonder how Nolan is planning to play with such concept within the story which makes it more captivating. I'm assuming mobius might be referring to mobius st...

Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

Yes. Part of the equation is how much control director really has and does that entail, say an actor not shining by virtue of his own performance or there being left no room for improvisation (it is for this reason that Nolan was contemplating shooting Dunkirk without any script, i.e. improvisation...

Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

i think it depends on how intense the film is, Interstellar had many moments of silence and calm amidst the gargantuan spectacle, and Dunkirk seldom rested from the chaos and tension, thats why it was so much shorter and it worked perfectly, i predict a length of about 2hrs and 30 something minutes...

I can't stop watching the prologue it's so good!!!
Without getting into details and specifics of whatever happens in the prologue, what would you say about it? Was it intense, captivating, innovative?

Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

There is absolutely little to no need for a film like this to be 3 hours long, it would be self indulgent, and yes the IMAX palette issue will ensure this film is maximum around 2hr45 mins. 3+ hour movies tend to be softer more character driven films, I think people underestimate how washed out an ...

Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

I'm betting it's over 3 hours. Pattinson said something along the lines of "it's the length of three movies". I'm taking that literally. Also, Nolan was watching Lawrence of Arabia on repeat while writing Tenet. That might be a sign that this movie is his largest and longest. agree Do you really th...

Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

His films have featured on lots of these lists, both in the 2000s and 2010s (Interstellar being an baffling exception, don't understand why that film is not making more lists in the US). You can only wonder. But one thing I’ve seen in common when people complain about interstellar is the concept of...

Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

Under the skin is a lot of people`s favorite film, i can see why, but it does nothing for me, i feel like most of Chris`s work will be more critically appreciated down the line. Under the skin is good but not something to be considered excellent or great but each to their own. And actually, I was t...

masterpiece 1 : a work done with extraordinary skill especially : a supreme intellectual or artistic achievement https://i.imgur.com/R8NFWdo.jpg As such, I don't think any film can be a masterpiece in the true sense of the word.

What do you all think about this tweet: https://twitter.com/SirBenKenobi/status ... 65985?s=20

I’ve seen films before that include the world and they still can be considered masterpieces. In fact, there are such movies that are very personal despite the scope.
