Tenet The oddest place in the world Christopher Nolan’s filmography. It became one the big tentpoles during the early years of The pandemic, and Warner Bros. simultaneous streaming/theatrical releases of its films led him to jump ship to Universal. Ahead of the movie’s Re-release of upcoming releases, Nolan’s telling folks that they shouldn’t think too hard about what the hell’s going on in this movie.
