Critic Reviews for Tenet
The auteur doesn't show much growth in his most recent self-indulgent work.
What strikes you is how determinedly bare of feeling it seems, even when emotional opportunities present themselves.
Telling a story backward sounds bizarre - it is bizarre - but it works. The backward stuff in "Tenet" sounds bizarre - worse than bizarre, goofy - and for a while it works. But once it doesn't, it really doesn't.
It's a shiny clockwork contraption with a hollow center: a convoluted Rubik's Cube blockbuster that, once solved, reveals little more than the complexity of its own design.
Both utterly dazzling and increasingly bewildering.
Maybe you could follow what is happening if you wrote it all down on a flow chart with circles and arrows and multiple colored inks, but it wouldn't be worth the effort - and that's hard to do in a dark movie theater.
