Description: Director Christopher Nolan's epic thriller tells the story of American physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who led the Manhattan Project in the atomic bomb development program. R. Oppenheimer owns the idea of bringing together all the physicists working in the field of the atomic bomb in a unified scientific center in Los Alamos, USA.
The first thing I have to mention is that the film is very well made, it might sound strange, but here it feels like a real "cinema". Shots, lighting, colors, everything is processed, thought out and presented as if they "rhymed" with each other (well, that's George Lucas' famous phrase). The actors here are chosen wonderfully, and it's even strange how many big stars play roles that last only a few seconds. Nolan has certainly gathered all his friends and luminaries from Hollywood. Is the film a must-see on the big screen? Not necessarily, the long duration and character-filled drama can be watched quite comfortably in pajamas and a bottle of beer. It's definitely not a "for everyone" movie, so if you're not interested in history, personalities, politics, or the Second/Cold War, you might get a little bored here. But if you're into that, I think this is one of the best movies of the year.
I've heard it said a few times - don't try to understand just FEEL Nolan's movies. And until now, I couldn't "feel" it or understand it. Until Oppenheimer… the previous films seemed to try too hard, try to cram everything in, and seemed to focus on the wrong things. But here everything is different, the film feels like the story of one person, sometimes more detailed, sometimes more sentimental, and sometimes just shown in passing. Things that seem to us from the outside to be mega important in such a story, were simply not that memorable for Oppenheimer. The very speed and jumping of the story, the overprinting of some places felt much more logical if you imagine how the father of the Atomic Bomb himself tells this story. In general, this story can sometimes feel too fast, but I don't blame her, again, this is a person who influenced the most important events of that time. The film is dull, confusing, indecisive, and at the same time as stubborn as its main star.
Should I say something before this movie? Probably everyone could find something. Could be shorter, of course, but lately everything could be shorter. Does the film have too many characters and names, of course, but we are talking about projects in which hundreds of people actually participated and influenced, so you can't throw out the words of the song as they say. Could it have been more about the bomb? More on war etc? Yes, but read the title of the movie again, it doesn't say "Atomic Bomb"... Personally, 10 worthy works that live up to their expectations and deliver exactly what they promised - That's right, it's a slow and rich drama about one man's life, anxieties, achievements, and done mistakes that cost a lot. Thanks Uncle Nolan!Overall - 10/10
