OPPENHEIMER – MORNING REEL REVIEW
Christopher Nolan is back and he’s back with Oppenheimer, and adapted biographical film abut J. Robert Oppenheimer, the “father” of the atomic. It’s wild film both visual and audio. It’s a film made to be experienced in the theater and the screenplay itself is just as good. I like how the film tackles with the psychological effects and politics scientists go through with such a notion that we have not only developed a weapon of mass destruction but we have unlocked the capabilities of more and a country like the United States will use it and probably abuse it. It tackles grief, trustworthiness, and loyalty and the great cast of characters this film has shows it in their own way. What a paradox of a film and the people in the film show forth.
I will see this film again. This film demands your attention, assumes that you can follow the dialog and how the events go back and forth only to fit the puzzle and what a puzzle it was to make an atomic bomb, especially out of the eyes of the normal everyday. Imagine being the man not only behind Manhattan Project but to possess all the knowledge and where it can lead. It’s a very scary thing and the film does just that. Nolan did a great job showing the dangerous power of man and how we don’t how to possess it with clarity and reason.
Four out of four tokes.
