The movies directed by Christopher Nolan own always something special infiltrating subconscious ("Inception"), giving quantum informations ("Interstellar") or playing with time flexibility ("Dunkerque"). This specificity can also be used for Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. He succeeds all the time to take high budgets from the US studios (100 millions $ for "Dunkerque" and 200 millions for "Tenet") for directing cerebral films but now the challenge seems to be different. The Covid has twisted the films calendar until 2021 and "Tenet" could save the motion picture industry from a collapse. A secret agent withou any sense of humor in spite of the fact that Nolan is a James Bond fan follows the purpose saving the planet from a Russian leader. This agent doesn't belong to CIA or MI6 and asks all the time to people he meets the name of their boss. Nolan likes the space breaks and each characters is confrontated to his double coming form the future. The double character can easily be identified because it does everything in reverse side (driving, running, walking, speaking) and also translate the Nolan's obsessions meaning inversing the curve of time. For directing his movie Nolan works with the same collabortors since 2002. Belonging to his crew is something difficult because you need to know well your job and to keep watching silence because Nolan takes the control of everything on the set.
