Will Tenet Really Open in The U.S. Over Labor Day? Are You Going?

  1. PBS says:

    Maybe? (Drive-ins count I suppose)

    And NOPE I am not going

  2. Bob Burns says:

    Nolan has received years of praise, honors, power and cash beyond the wildest expectations of countless filmmakers. Has he always been annoying, or is he being pushed by Warner? no idea. These release day announcements have become pitiable…. except that he is number 10 billion among men and beasts on the prayer list.

    As Bear Bryant used to advise his players celebrating plays, “Relax, son. Act like you been there before.”

  3. Jake says:

    I may try and catch it at a drive-in. Haven’t been to one in years, could be fun. Otherwise, wait for VOD and try not to read spoilers about it, which could be difficult. Going to a theater isn’t on my radar right now. Not seeing Tenet and Dune on a giant dolby screen is gonna hurt. Wish they’d just delay everything a year. Is it super expensive to keep a film in the can for a year? How come Fast and Furious did that immediately but there doesn’t seem to be any discussion of that strategy for Tenet? If I was Nolan I’d say fuck this, summer 2021 it is.

"There is, of course, an eerie prescience to She Dies Tomorrow, not just in its depiction of a pandemic (however absurd this particular one may be) but also in its bleak, spellbinding solitude; an existential plague, it turns out, is almost as effective as our current, real-life one in alienating us from each other."

The Ross Brothers: "There’s not one film of Altman’s that we don’t like, but Nashville is the holy grail. When we first saw it, we were so blown away that a film could feel so natural and lived in, and that influenced the way we thought about movies and made them from then on. On the surface it feels like just a bunch of interconnected moments, but a deeper reading shows that it’s about the fatality of America. Then there’s the editing, the use of sound, and the curious camera, which seems to be wandering, making us privy to every conversation it’s focused on. If we were ranking Altman films, this would be one through ten."

Max Richter: "Throughout my 20s and 30s I worked constantly. Weekends were nonexistent; I worked on multiple paid jobs to support my own creative projects. Now I have the luxury of taking this time off, I’m religious about protecting my weekends. Our lives are data-saturated.It’s psychologically demanding to live on screens 24/7. Sundays are for switching off. I treasure the time for recuperation."
