Film director Christopher Nolan’s unwritten thoughts are like sculptures and aim less at recreating life as much as creating Escher-like puzzle boxes that are utterly unlike almost anything we experience in reality. Nolan is the consummate trickster, aiming to use the full power of cinema to beguile audiences with the cleverness of his construction projects. His newest film Tenet, now in some theaters nationwide, is perhaps the knottiest of his puzzle boxes.
