Christopher Nolan’s newest film, Tenet, has received both shallow praise and hurried criticism.
My article here may be a bit hurried as well, in that I hope to revisit the film again after it gets its home release and I have had even more time to sit with it. My point in the article here is not that the viewer must like Nolan’s latest film but rather that Nolan has proven himself a great pop artist and should be taken seriously with his newest endeavor. We ought to consider that perhaps he is saying something worth considering. It should always be this way with such artists. I hope more viewers will take the time to take Nolan and Tenet as seriously as they deserve.
