The first Hollywood tent-pole to open in theaters after the covid19 pandemic shutdown, TENET hit the cinemas in England on August 26 as well the US a week later and has so far been met with mainly positive reviews for its incredible albeit little confusing story and tremendous acting by John Washington (Ballers, BlacK Klansman) as the ‘protagonist’, a CIA agent who’s mission is to prevent World War III.
A Snycopy and Warner Bros production written by Christopher Nolan, we are told very early on this film is not about time travel and don’t worry if you struggle to know truly what’s going on because not only is that stated in the film but you will not be alone.
It is big, if is brash, beautiful, complex, bonkers, baffling and mind twisting, but that is what makes it so good, so powerful, so unique. Such is the beauty behind this film that Nolan took years to write it and production actually took place in not only the United States and United Kingdom but also in Denmark, Estonia, India, Italy, and Norway – think about that for a moment.
