My brain hurts.

Thoughts (spoilers)

Inception is one of my favorites, but Tenet was just exhausting. It's exhausting to even discuss, so I'll just fire off these points:

The good

  • Impressive secret agent setup and worldbuilding.
  • Creative cool heists.

The bad

  • Incomprehensible. Even if it makes sense somehow, it's not worth the mental energy required to process it all.
  • Lots and lots of boring confusing expository scenes.
  • Who the hell were the enemies at the battle at the end? Russians? What was their motivation for guarding the "algorithm"? Because boss man said to?

I have no interest in unraveling this mess.
