There were some good parts, and some obviously politically motivated parts. Mostly good though.

It's in Netflix in Spanish subtitled into English, I think its dubbed into English too but with a sucky dialogue and voice overs. I don't know why I liked this movie so much maybe it's because I love prison-related movies (ShawShank Redemption, Prison Escape) but this thing kept me at the edge of my seat from start to finish, just the ending ****** me off. I recommend you to watch it!
yeah this is one ****** up movie, i have about 10 minutes left. Just bonkers.

The director is another Michael Moore I was reading, he doesn't like the top rich 1% and corporations. He made this movie as a "figuritive" film that reflects the rich world with the poor, that if the rich didn't splash on luxuries and share that money just a little that there wouldn't be starving poor people around the world. Its a political master piece.

But the ending sucks. I expected a better ending, better outcome.

Hey BAGGSY where can I see that Moore movie "Trumpland"??

Watched "Unchained" doc about moto-x stunting on Netflix. Started out a little boasty and promotional, but it got better as it went on. You have to marvel at the chances these guys take for a few bucks vs just doing things for fun. A must see for jumpers.

Do you agree with Moores assertion about the rich?

I'm not against the rich and I think they are a great asset to society and they should not share their wealth with welfare bums. But at the same time we should not bail out their corporations, let them go bankrupt if they can't keep up. Not a penny should be given to their businesses, but that will never be possible because all our politicians are buddies of the rich.

American Utopia on HBO (crave). David Byrne is brilliant. I think Spike Lee did this.
The best entertainment i have experienced in years.
Byrne fills the empty spot that David Bowie left.

I watched One Week to Live last night (Prime), kinda of a cool thing to do in a pandemic world.

I've made the trip across Canada countless times, maybe next time I'll do it like he did -- just a bike, a change of clothes, credit card and a phone - no plan and no agenda.

Has anyone seen Tenet? This has become my latest obsession.

******SPOILERS BELOW*****












I remember when Inception came out, people were drawing these complex diagrams of all the nesting dreams and what was happening, when it was happening, etc. I didn't care too deeply about how complex the plot was.

But this movie has me reading all the Reddit subgroups and watching all the YouTube videos about how each of the characters criss-cross each other forwards and backwards in time. The first time I watched the movie, I was just trying to piece together the mechanics of the inversion. The second time I really paid attention to what was happening and while re-watching it, I just got this sense that somehow, somewhere, there was a plot hole somewhere and Nolan had screwed up the timeline somehow - specifically the car chase scene. So many inverted characters and machines interacting with normal characters and machinery. Was the black Audi SUV inverted or not? Nobody on the Internet is straight on that. It just seems like that whole scene shouldn't work.

After doing all that research, I'm heading back for a third rewatch just to see if it all still makes sense.

As for a review of the movie, I think it's captivating film-making, like all of Nolan's films. The time-inversion and re-visiting past scenes a la Back-To-The-Future-Part-II makes for fascinating viewing. It's super-smart , but I think it ranks lower than Inception and Interstellar in terms of emotional impact. Nolan spent more time making you care about the characters in his previous movies than he does in Tenet.

I think the main problem is that the movie is 2 hours and 20 minutes long. On first viewing, the movie felt very rushed, like a lot was left on the cutting room floor - specifically things like character backstory. So much of the film is plot-driven and jam-packed with all the little clues, like it was trying *too* hard to be smart and forgot that it also had to tell a story about people as well.

Also, the editing was too tight, so much so that I totally did not get whether Neil died in the cave or not? Based on his goodbyes at the end of the movie before he re-entered, I assumed that he did die, but watching that scene, it was confusing exactly when he took a bullet for The Protaganist. IMO, it could have been edited better. Also, when TP threw the Algorithm component in the back of his inverted self's silver car - from reading Reddit, people surmised that Inverted Sator recovered it when the car first returns to the wharf before the chase scene - not when he blew the car up at the end - because the inverted component was traveling backwards in time... This was never explained in the movie.

Confusing. More could have been shown and explained, but I think the movie would have been close to three hours in that case.

The movie really reminded me of Memento, where at the half-way point, the film reverses in on itself. I like it a lot, and it's one of the movies where you really have to watch multiple times to get all the subtle nuances of the plot.

If you've already watched it, read this wiki so you can be more impressed with Christopher Nolan: Sator Square - Wikipedia

Watched it yesterday actually. I'll need another one to get my head around everything. Fantastic directing.
