    Christopher Nolan has done something near impossible, being able to make movies blockbuster events just by putting his name on it.

    In college, I was a theoretical physics major for the first 2 years and my advisor worked on above-ground testing of the atomic bomb. He had some great pictures of the testing and could tell stories about taking the bombs up towers to be detonated so readings could be obtained. Man, he made it all sound so fantastic that I could not wait to start doing math to find the next big secret but alas, I had to change my major and ended up in medicine and medical research. My advisor passed on about 20 years ago now but I remember our time together fondly. He said the work was so boring sometimes that the scientists and assistants built cars to race each other and he knew so much about the cars of the period. I think he loved cars more than physics sometimes.

    About the whole “no CGI thing”, Nolan confirmed that he’s referring to no fully rendered shots. Every shot is grounded in reality with real footage from a real set, then accentuated with CGI.

  4. The Boulder takes issue with that comment says:

    He had better win an Oscar finally for this role. He’s a brilliant actor and deserves the recognition.

    Omg thank you Chris for bringing the short screen time of certain characters up. The amounts of time I have seen people criticising that certain characters have so little screen time is annoying me so damn much, cause they obviously didn’t understand that this is actually how it fcking was. If you see a person for like two scenes it’s just how it was in reality. This is – in the end – still a biopic.

    went to Oppenheimer today in iMAX and it was absolutely incredible. the 3 hours flew by, and at the end, the audience was in complete silence, started clapping and left in complete silence again, processing what they’d just seen. and so was I! stunning visuals, an intriguing story, brilliant storytelling. if this movie doesn’t get any Oscars, then i’d be baffled

    Thanks for the warning about dialogue audio levels. Everyone who is hard of hearing, keep in mind that most, if not all, modern cinemas have and should offer closed captioning devices for you to use. Some may be glasses you wear, a box that attatches to your seat that scrolls the captions, or a simple mirror that attatches to your seat that reflects the captions from the back of the house. Please utilize these devices. 💙

      Came here to say this. I won’t watch a movie in theatres without borrowing one of these when getting my ticket. I don’t understand why movies can’t sound mix their dialogue to be audible anymore, but at least I can figure out what’s being said.

    • A Olson says:

      @KaitieKudara The vast majority of people can hear what’s being said. They’re not going to mix movies for the small minority of deaf people.

    • Ekaterina Staneva says:

      ​@A Olsonthe vast majority of people cannot hear what’s being said in Nolans movies. I don’t care how sharp your hearing is, a third of Tenets dialogue was a mumble.

    • C. S. McLeod says:

      Yes. Closed caption would be nice.

    • AG says:

      I’m hearing-impaired & use these devices, but it is not the same. They make it very awkward to enjoy the movie – you’re constantly looking up at the movie, down at the device, up, down. Or the glasses stop showing text if you move your head, etc. Many times the devices don’t actually work. I just wish movies would offer subtitles. And IMO Nolan is practically discriminating against hearing-impaired people at this point by saying he does not care whether people can understand his dialogue.

    I know the current trend is the “Barbieheimer”, but I prefer to mirror Nolan and Tom Cruise as two of Hollywood’s figures who are seriously pushing a cinematic journey for the audience and I applaud that. Similar as Scorsese, Jordan Peele and Tarantino, I applaud those filmmakers who do theatrical instead of Netflix oriented movies.

    Christopher Nolan was my favorite director 10 years ago and he’s still going strong!
