    Pretty good. It had all of the trappings of the slow serious debut drama but refused to be that. This is funny, has a ton of personality, and some very good performances. 

    I didn’t feel like it had that much to say, to be honest, its plot and themes were more of a tool to display character relationships. Sometimes that’s fine.

    I hate when I miss an obvious metaphor, I feel like I miss out on the film.

    This film in particular would have really benefited from me buying into that metaphor, because it is otherwise generic and unambitious. There are moments when it’s clear it could have gone way farther, but it just… doesn’t.

    I want to say being disengaged from the movie is why I missed its meaning, but to be honest I really just didn’t think that much about it.

    It’s going to take another viewing to form an opinion on this. Right off the gate, the infamous Nolan voice mixing issue is back which, along with the unnecessarily confusing editing, made the first act very difficult to follow.
    The film grew on me with the second act, and I loved the third act. I think it’s Nolan’s thematically richest film, and it’s way more nuanced than I expected from him.
    I came out of it overall impressed, but I feel like I haven’t really watched it yet.
