Cillian Murphy offers an assured and considered performance here as the man who is credited with developing the bomb that hastened the end of WWII in the far east. He is the increasingly acclaimed, eponymous, physicist who is made aware by Admiral Lewis Strauss (another strong performance from Robert Downey Jr.) that it just possible that the Russians have the A-bomb. Now Oppenheimer already suspects that the Nazis are also well on their way to weaponising the atom – his earlier education and career had introduced him to some of the prominent minds in the UK and in Germany who were quite capable of taking the theory forward; so he begins to pressurise the American government to begin it’s own programme – and the “Manhattan Project” is born. Motivated/goaded/galvanised by the ambitious “Col. Groves” (Matt Damon) he assembles a formidable collection of scientific minds at a purpose built, desert, location which he christens Los Alamos, and over the next three years – and with $2bn to spend – they work on the science whilst plutonium and uranium are being simultaneously processed at an irkingly glacial pace! Given that much of this is reasonably well documented history, the actual plot here has little by way of jeopardy. Instead, Christopher Nolan attempts via his writing and direction to put some meat on the bones of the characters here. It’s clear that Oppenheimer is a bit of a Lothario, but it’s also clear that he can engender the loyalty of a variety of people with diverging views – not just surrounding the science of their project, but around the morals and ethics of creating something that – well, you can’t get the toothpaste back into the tube. The latter portion of this drama focusses on the subsequent, communist-obsessed, witch-hunting that went on attempting to persecute and smear this remarkable and flawed individual, and it makes some interesting postulations about just who was pulling whose strings. It also has quite a penetrating resonation about it – not just, specifically, about Oppeneheimer – but about all of those post-event “enquiries” that rarely deliver an honest appraisal of what was done in the name of expediency at the time, but ends up more of a character assassination exercise by those who didn’t do anything against those who did and had to. Though at times the pace of this thing helps to keep it enthralling, it is too long – at times it really does plod along. Perhaps an other, objective, eye on the writing/direction may have tightened it up without having to sacrifice any of the potency of the story. Maybe someone needs to tell Mr. Nolan that a three hour film isn’t always required! That said, it’s a gorgeous film to look at. The aesthetics are first rate and the entire sentiment of the film reeks of authenticity. I do think this thrives better on a big screen so try to see it as it was intended. It’s though provoking, complex, characterful – and well worth a watch.
**OPPENHEIMER IS “NOT FOR EVERYONE” AS STATED BY CHRISTROPHER NOLAN BEFORE THE RELEASE OF THE FILM HIMSELF. ** But those who have ample knowledge of physics and chemistry, this film is a masterpiece. The film takes the viewer into the mind of the “Father of the atomic bomb” how he thinks, how he feels with much accuracy. Nolan beautifully explains his life both on a private and professional front. The music, the sounds with each scene are top notch. The visuals of QUANTUM PHYSICS, FISSION, NUCLEAR EXPLOSION are mind-boggling.
If possible, watch it in IMAX.
THE MOVIE IS FULL OF DIALOGUES, CONVERSATIONS MOVING BACK AND FORTH IN TIMELINE. It’s a historical biography with fantabulous acting by C.M., E.B., R.D.J. and more. The scenes with ALBERT EINSTEIN are just wow. A plethora of scientists(BOHR, FERMI, TELLER, HEISENBERG) of the age can be seen throughout. There are no action scenes if you are in search of that.
IT IS A CINEMATOGRAPHIC BRILLIANCE. IF U CAN’T WATCH SIENTIFIC HISTORY JUST DON’T GO.
Another Cinematic Masterpiece by Christopher Nolan
Oppenheimer might be the best film I watched in a long, long time.
Very different than Nolan’s recent films, especially the Sci-Fi ones, but shows that Nolan can master the Biopic/Drama genre just as well as he can any other genre he tried to tackle yet.
The film is 3-hours long but goes through very quickly and enjoyably. Without spoiling anything, the film presents important and very relevant subjects, and doing so while being non-stop entertainment and a comprehensive character study and a study of our society on a very high pace.
Without mentioning anything specific, there was one scene that caused almost every single person in the theatre to move nervously in the seats, non-stop for a long period of time, being one of the most intense scenes I ever watched in a movie and reminding me of the true power of the cinematic experience like no other movie did in recent years.
The year is only half-way through but right now this is my top pick for the upcoming awards season. Picture, Writing, Directing, Acting, Score– Oppenheimer is a winner on all fronts. A rare feat for filmmaking and a salient reminder that cinema is not dead.
I highly recommend this film to everyone. Watched it once already, and going back to the theatre for at least a few more times soon.
Nolan is back and delivers a fast paced thrilling biopic that will leave you stunned.the cinematography, sound design, score all exceptional. Every acting performance is perfect with Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey JR standing out. Nolan is experimenting with new styles of surrealist and subjective filmmaking to him which is so incredible to see from such a seasoned writer and director. He’s pushing the envelope with Oppenheimer and challenging the audience like never before.
Nolan’s character study merges a thematically resonant story with a breathtaking soundscape & epic visuals. The IMAX experience for this one is a must.
You will need to stay focused because the film moves very quickly with sharp snappy dialogue.
