As Tenet arrives on HBO Max, we continue our look back at filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s entire feature-length filmography. We began this series last fall, exploring each of Nolan’s films, and we conclude it today (for now!).
Warning: Full spoilers for Tenet follow.
Christopher Nolan’s eleventh feature is a rousing cinematic success, a culmination of the director’s 22-year career and his obsession with time as a moving fabric imprinted on film.
It’s a thrilling work despite itself, circumventing dramatic inconsistencies through sheer momentum. The result is a sensory experience that demands leaning forward and being constantly, actively engaged (not the least because of its overpowering sound mix).

The show depicts a pre-COVID world full of catered parties — and then its aftermath
Each episode depicts a single affair catered by famed restaurateur Puck, he of California cuisine standard-bearer Spago, and, especially, by the team beneath him. And the first two installments — the dinner and after-party at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards, and then a small two-day conference of entrepreneurs held, for reasons withheld from us, in the cavernous Rose Bowl — go off with only the sort of mishaps that these caterers have seen before.
