    Minor nitpick: I don't think Neil's body would be there in the future, because he was killed while he was inverted. From the future's perspective, he'd been lying there dead, un-decaying, and then suddenly he was alive, shooting that one guy, and walking (backward) out of there.

    Ya I remember a lot of people being like "inception is weird and I found it hard to follow", whereas I was with it right on the first watchthrough. But this one I found quite hard to follow, even though I was trying my best. It sure asks a lot of the audience for a first viewing. But on the flipside, it did make me excited to revisit it later. Who says you have to totally get every single thing the first time for a movie to be good?


    finally, I barely know what happen now here

  • Stephen's Site
    Stephen's Site2 månader sedan

    The thing is, TENET tells you, repeatedly, what's going on during the movie. Where most movies would devote dialogue to the characters and their backstories and motivations and relationships with each other, TENET reserves its speaky moments for explaining things that are about to happen; and then, explaining things that *are* happening; and then, explaining things that *just* happened. If you can't understand what's happening in TENET, that's not the movie's fault. It did everything it could to explain it to you. And honestly, it's not even that hard to understand. A little technobabble here and there, and the overarching explanation that some things are just plain happening backwards. That's really all you need to know.

    He should have tinted the entire thing blue, but he can’t, because this isn’t in reverse, he made it this way so someone inverted couldn’t watch this anyway, so why is zero before 2 and after 1? A little nod to how they invert halfway through the movie I guess

    Here's a thing: When I first got a video of yours recommented, I didn't like the idea at all. I didn't watch Cinemasins but I like knew it existed, and this video format just seemed like that one person who doesn't get the sarcasm of a joke and takes it seriousely, you know what I mean? Like, when I say something like "I am so stupid", that person tries to convince me that I am great and starts to tell me everything great about me. But this channel really surprised me, because even this complementing is made with sarcasm and I honestely love this channel and the only flaw of it is, that it doesn't have more videos.

    Okay so at 3:38 you say that Neil's undecayed body might be there to find for the future guys when they try to retreive the algorithm. This doesn't happen because moving forward in time Neil actually comes to life runs backward into the turnstile and disappears for good. Since he is inverted and dies he can't make it to a turnstile to un-invert himself. So he doesn't exist into the future anymore.

  • Lucas Salgado
    Lucas Salgado5 månader sedan

    Great explanation, sums it up really well. About Neil's undecayed corpse 300 years in the future: not really. Remember, to unlock the door and save the protagonist, he inverted. Some point after the battle in Stalsk-12, it seems. When someone enters the turnstile, their bodies vanish to anyone observing them, and the person who inverted is not seen again from that point on (unless they re-invert and enough time passes from that point). What you shouldn't be think about is that Neil's body is decaying in reverse. So, let's say that the hypocenter was built 40 years ago. At some point, 2010's or something, a skeleton forms from ashes, decayed flesh appears, its skin, hair and eyes forms again, followed by a military uniform that covers it.... you know the rest. Yeah, Tenet could be a horror movie

  • Arslan
    Arslan5 månader sedan

    If you think about it... Neil seizes to exist because in reverse time, we see him taking the bullet for the Protagonist and dying in reverse for the rest of eternity while he slowly rots and decays. But in forward time he is already dead, and is slowly un-rotting and un-decaying, until the point where he jumps back up from the dead, and "re takes the bullet" for the Protagonist, unlocks the door, and runs out of the cave backwards, and we can assume he runs back into the turnstile and disappears forever... (unless someone is inverted during that moment, so in their perspective 2 Neil's would be running out that turnstile out of nowhere, one of them would be backwards (in their perspective) and the other Neil would look normal and would go inside the cave, unlock the door, and take the bullet for the Protagonist, and his body would slowly decay from that point on.)

    One thing that I think led to a lot of confusion and should have been explained in the movie is: how do they get inverted all the way back to stalsk-12 battle, there's no mention of turnstyles back then, and later on they even say that they don't have any (which is why they have to go un-reverse in oslo to save Kat) and it couldn't have been through the oslo airport because sator was controlling that facility before then.

    First of all I’m a big fan of your videos. I learned to look at different aspects of film making because of your videos . But I feel like with tenet the plot is simply convoluted for the sake of being convoluted . It’s visually gorgeous and stylish but if your explanation of the plot in this video comes out just as confusing as the movie itself . Trying to explain how the plot isn’t that confusing is redundant

    Well done on this difficult piece. I was lucky enough to see this in the cinema 3 times. Here in Australia, we have been able to go to the cinema with covid safe rules since August. The only problem is there are not many movies to see. I understand why Nolan was so insistent about releasing this in the cinema. It’s an amazing, immersive experience. Such a shame so many missed out. Without the initial experience of immersive sight and sound many people have dismissed it. But boy are they missing something. It’s awards worthy but will be overlooked for more accessible streaming era films.
