The Long Take

Jul 24 2023 • 31 mins

Oppenheimer is Christopher Nolan’s most political movie yet, and in many ways, among his most sobering.

We discuss the film’s dialogue-heavy storytelling, the epic Trinity test sequence, the moral dilemma at its core, and Nolan’s deliberate artistic deviations from his past work.

We also talk about the hourlong final act, which turns Oppenheimer into a wholly different experience, and make a feeble attempt to rank where the movie stands in Nolan’s filmography.
