Hence this question, by participating in the podcast ReelBlend, about the director’s latest film, Tenet : What did he think of this new story linked to time? The director of pulp Fiction laughingly replies that he hasn’t understood everything. “I would have to remake it”, he adds, recalling that he had not fully appreciated Dunkirk only after three views. “I liked the movie, he had detailed, but the spectacle took precedence over the experience. I don’t think I felt any emotion.

Finally, I could see something through the trees. “
