Oppenheimer Will Be a Very Complex Experience

MOVIE NEWS – One of the most anticipated films of the year is Oppenheimer, which presents the life of the father of the atomic bomb, but it is not an ordinary biographical film. This is guaranteed by the personality of screenwriter-director Christopher Nolan, whose every film makes the viewer think intensely.


Nolan himself warns well in advance: Oppenheimer has a similar ending to his previous great success, Origin, which has been making fans debate for 13 years now. “Origins” has an ambivalent ending, as it remains open to many whether the final scene is a dream or reality, Nolan said in an interview with Wired magazine. – However, this is not an emotional ambivalence, but an intellectual one. Oppenheimer has a similar ending, very complicated and if you will, disturbing. It’s as if he doesn’t give answers to previously asked questions, but asks new ones.”

The director also told that a part of the audience left one of the early screenings of his film completely overwhelmed, and some even left the room before the end because they couldn’t handle the emotional tension.

Oppenheimer’s subject matter is understandably stirring in Japan because of the memory of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The date of the film’s premiere in the island country has not yet been set, the American and Japanese distributors are currently looking for the optimal solution.

By the way, the Japanese have had problems with Nolan before, more precisely with the complicated structure of Origins. Since the story mostly takes place in the subconscious, and the characters fall from one dream to another, it is difficult for many to follow the events. The Japanese TV channels resorted to the solution of informing the viewers with subtitles in the upper left corner of the screen, who is dreaming the given scene. No survey was made on the success of the business.
