This feels like a very short 3-hour movie. It moves really well and it all seems to matter to the overall narrative.
The black-and-white sequences are really striking.
While I can appreciate the significance of the film and enjoyed being immersed in it, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped I would and I didn’t seem to have the same revolutionary experience as others when the end credits rolled.
It’s not very high on my Christopher Nolan list, which is likely an unpopular opinion.
I know myself well enough to know that this isn’t usually the type of movie I love. And I think that’s OK.
Spoiler alert: the bomb explosion isn’t even the most exciting part of the movie.
The casting is absolutely astounding! It seems like every actor was cast in the exact role they were born for. It’s kind of wild.
