    I might watch it again, but basically, my first watch once we got to Elizabeth Debicki and Kenneth Branagh made me feel like I was stoned and for the rest, I had my hands folded behind my head laughing saying "sure, why not?" at whatever plot points came next. Whenever something inverted, It felt to me like a Buster Keaton sketch which made me chuckle. I think where it really lost me is that there's a line of dialogue saying that Sator and his wife is just a side mission and then suddenly they're the crux of the story.

    Obviously Nolan is very clever. I think Nolan knew people would assume that Neil is Max. However, unless there is some sort of genetic defect.. a son is always taller than his mother. This scientifically proven rule is very very well known. Robert Pattison (Neil) is 6 feet tall. However, Elizabeth Debicki is very tall, and is 6 feet 3 inches. That would make it impossible for Neil to be her son. Unless, of course, he has some kind of birth defect.. which I don't think he has. However, I think Nolan got a very tall actress on purpose so that the audience would figure out that Neil is not Max.

    I really appreciate the "what's happened happened" sort of time travel. It's a very freeing way of looking at things. You can act, do the best you can, and whatever happens is the inevitable result of that. There was no way you could make things turn out different, it was always going to be like that. You just have to have faith in the way the world works. I think there's a element of absurdism to it. If you revolt against the absurd by doing something to make the world a better place then the results of that attempt is irrelevant, the important part is that you've done the decent thing.

    I haven’t seen anyone comment about it or mentioned in the vid but the title could be explained. The plan at the end of the movie where red and blue are moving in different directions, one going up from zero to 10 and one going from 10 to zero. Literally ten and ten but one is inverted so it is ten and net (ten backwards) and where they meet in the middle together to succeed, they make tenet. That could be totally nonsense but I’ll take it.

    Wait, so you all know how Sator's watch will set off the bomb if his pulse hits a flat line right. So while the whole battle at Stalsk-12 was going on maybe Sator had INTENDED for Kat to kill him? Just a theory, or is that actually how it goes?

    I don't think an off screen scene between Kat and Neil about Neil being her son would make sense because Kat wouldn't recognize Neil since the movies version of Kat only knows her son to be a little boy. Maybe in the future as her son starts to look like Neil and the protagonist recruits him she might realize that Neil was actually her son the whole time, but that would happen after the timeline of the movie.

    My theory for max being Neil. I think at some point, some time Kat is eventually going to get killed, likely by Ives. The phone thing is a great warning but not infallible. At that point the protagonist will revel himself to Max/Neil saying that he knew his mother and is responsible for her death by not being able to save her. Max will be recruited into tenet from a young age and has his name changed to Neil (using your theory) so he can escape his old identity. I reckon as a part of training for tenet soldiers they invert on a daily cycle in order to train without losing time. The protagonist take Neil into the past (he said he has a future in the past) gradually and by the time the events of the movie come to they’ve experienced a long beautiful friendship together

    The moment where we see them say goodbye and the forwards and backness of their friendship reminded me of River and The doctor in doctor who. When we are first introduced to river she already knows the doctor but he is meeting her for the first time. It added an extra weight to her self sacrifice once realising that the whole time that she had know him he always knew she was going to die. Same for Neil as he worked out pretty quickly that was the end of the line for him but was excited for the protagonist to see it all unfold in his time line. You are left feeling empty for not being about to see those events unfold. Although the story line of River was overly complicated for what’s meant to be a kids tv show it did show the difficulties of two peoples time lines going in opposite direction and simultaneously or as the doctor would say wibbly wobbly timywhimy. Because we don’t know where exactly Neils prospective is as it is working backwards and forwards at the same time. Maybe if we were given the scene in which Neil meets the protagonist for the first time with our knowledge that the protagonist knows he’s going to die, with the nod to our direction maybe we wouldn’t be left feeling so empty. If anyone carried on to the end of my tangent thanks, hope it makes sense even if you do not understand the references

    I'm sorry but this film needs justification z not praise. Its batshit on a surface level, annoying on introspection and just impossibly convoluted on a deep dive.

    you didn't mention simple things that make no sense, we see constantly people moonwalking and cars driving backwards but we also see inverted people try to interact normally with non inverted people... Jim Carrey is a great physical actor but I don't think you could ask him to walk backwards and tape it then play it backwards and look normal, let alone running a hand through the hair. The film is impressive, some ideas are impressive but this film needed a better script and more time. Interstellar doesn't hold up because it relies on a paradox to work while inception holds up because it just works on every level. Nolan is great but had to rush production or never make the film, he chose cool action scenes over character and plot, I don't go to a Nolan film expecting a Jerry Bruckheimer production I want a journey. Sound was a big part of my negativity in watching this and may have stained my views but is definitely the reason I have watched this once and 3 times for 15 minutes until realizing I'm too pissed to continue, I'm jealous anybody truly likes this film, I appreciate the directing and some scenes writing and most of the acting but the complete picture is a mess in my view and I viscerally hate this film because I want to love it but can't.

    I was thinking about it and a way that Neil could in theory go "back" in time is if there is some form of like cryogenic stasis or something similar that halts or greatly reduces aging which isn't too inconceivable considering we get technology from the future in the first place. I can get why Nolan didn't want to make it more concrete though because then there's another level of like technology stuff to maybe explain / work into lore. The one possible tie in I can think of is the protagonist's coma after the opera siege, though it's only for a sort period of time.

    Bonus Win! The red and blue symbolism for different orientations in time may be a nod to red and blue shifts. An object that is moving closer while observed has a red tint and an object that is moving further away has a blue tint. The un-inverted move closer to a point in time while the inverted move further away as time progresses.

    Another cool point to add here. If you're familiar with Doctor Who, then this movie's ending will evoke for you Whovians the episode "Forest of the Dead" which has this lovely monologue from the character River Song just before her sacrifice to save the Doctor: RIVER: Funny thing is, this means you've always known how I was going to die. All the time we've been together, you knew I was coming here. The last time I saw you, the real you, the future you, I mean, you turned up on my doorstep, with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Darillium to see the Singing Towers. What a night that was. The Towers sang, and you cried. You wouldn't tell me why, but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the library. You even gave me your screwdriver. That should have been a clue. There is nothing you can do. DOCTOR: You can let me do this. RIVER: If you die here, it'll mean I've never met you. DOCTOR: Time can be rewritten. RIVER: Not those times. Not one line. Don't you dare. It's okay. It's okay. It's not over for you. You'll see me again. You've got all of that to come. You and me, time and space. You watch us run. If you know about Doctor Who, you will know what the relationship between the Doctor and River is like. It's a bit similar to this in that the first interaction for one of them is the last for the other. And then the loop is closed later on - The Protagonist will not only recruit Neil but might end up separated from Neil permanently but not before he tells that Neil from his (the Protagonist's) future a version of this exchange.

  68. East Meets West Presents

    East Meets West Presents

    Måned siden

    There's also something noteworthy as well in that final exchange between Neil and The Protagonist. Neil spills some revealing secrets of his past to the Protagonist while Ives is in the helicopter. This leads to two things: 1. This instance kinda contradicts most time travel movies in which one of the rules is that people in the past can't reveal secrets of the future lest a paradox is created. 2. Because Ives is in the helicopter and thus cannot hear the dialogue, Ives doesn't know that: a) Neil dies taking the bullet from Volkov (and heck he didn't see it because he was knocked out during the pivotal moment) and thus contributing to the endgame victory; and b) The Protagonist IS the leader behind Tenet; so his earlier dialog about killing the Protagonist and Neil if he 'ever finds them' is so ironic (because Neil will be dead anyway, and its probably treasonous to kill your boss). All the people that know that The Protagonist is the mastermind behind Tenet is either in the future or is dead in the past (except for Kat, maybe).

    So one paradox you may have missed. When Neil breaks off to steal the jeep and warn the splinter unit he is infact attracting the attention of Volkov's blue team who then inform him of the splinter team, which gives him the idea to seal them in the tunnel with the explosion, which in turn prompts Neil to intervene in the first place. Loops within loops.
