I was debating if it'd be worth it to go on a theater expedition during the coronacalypse for this movie but now not so much.  Can't remember a Nolan Film that was actually confusing (even Inception was easy to follow once you know it's mostly just trying to visually represent layers of consciousness, etc) but everyone who's seen this is saying it's a hot mess.  What makes this one confusing?  Did it seem like Nolan was trying and failing to do an action blockbuster Shane Carruth story or something?

 

It's frustratingly confusing because you can't understand a single damned word of the dialogue

Watching it a second time, I’m not sure how much the obscured dialog actually helps. Knowing what will happen later in the movie is really what helps you understand it. Which, in a bullshit way, kinda fits. 
 

He should really go full silent movie at some point.

This is actually making me more curious to see it now, and see if I have any issues with the dialogue lol. 

 

Looking at my IMAX theatre it looks like they space out the seats; two seats beside each other, then three unavailable seats, then another two seats, and so on. I mean maybe I could go if I looked ahead and saw no one else had booked seats so I knew there wouldn't be anyone else in the theatre, and I knew what the cleaning procedures by the staff were. Doubt my girlfriend would even want to though since she and I both don't feel comfortable eating in at a restaurant though.

I think the silent route would be great given how sparse the dialogue is in Dunkirk, which I think is far and away his best movie.  The problem with most Nolan movies is that the dialogue is often just the characters explaining the movie to each other for 2 hours.  He can be a great visual filmmaker, but I'd say most of his movies are tell don't show.  I haven't seen Tenet and don't plan to until I can see in at home, but it certainly sounds worse than Inception, which is insane.
