"What's happened happened. Which is an expression of faith in the mechanics of the world. It's not an excuse to do nothing." - Neil (Tenet)

I had the pleasure of going to see Tenet, not once, but twice over the course of the last couple weeks. By the time you read this, my comment will be as inverted as the time / space it occupies, but, it does not lessen the impact, or the feeling, of the experience of seeing Christopher Nolan's new film on IMAX, and then, a small screen at a local theater. 

Today's episode sees me discussing Tenet with my good friend, Steven Biscotti, as we tackle the time and space we find ourselves occupying during this pandemic and how big theater entertainment plays a role in providing some respite for us. 

We do tackle some concepts from the film and go into some mild spoilers, so, if you have not seen the film yet, of which is incredibly understandable given the need to be safe / healthy, then I would recommend holding off...or, if you're like me at all and happen to be curious about what this sci-fi, spy thriller is somewhat about...then listen on. 

I will be abundantly clear in these show notes that as the host of this show, I am not recommending that people go to their local theaters to see Tenet. That is a deeply personal choice and with full transparency, both screenings that I went to had almost nobody in attendance. 

Without further ado, welcome to episode 11 of Psychosocial Cinema; please enjoy today's discussion of, Tenet.
