Chris Nolan‘s Tenet pops today on 4K Bluray and Amazon streaming. Both will presumably offer subtitles. So starting today, anyone on the planet can watch this thing with at least a fighting chance of understanding the particulars, not to mention the mostly obscured dialogue.
I didn’t even try to make heads or tails of the story when I saw Tenet in Flagstaff three and a half months ago (a late afternoon screening on Friday, 9.4).
First paragraph of Tenet‘s Wiki synopsis: A CIA agent, the ‘Protagonist’, participates in an undercover operation at a Kyiv opera house. His life is saved by a masked soldier with a distinctive red trinket, who ‘un-fires’ a bullet through a hostile gunman. After seizing an artifact, the Protagonist is captured by mercenaries. He endures torture before consuming cyanide. He awakens to learn the cyanide was a test of his loyalty; his team has been killed and the artifact lost.”
