Mute: Anything But Silent

Published

on

Mute is a curious film, it has to communicate desire, secrecy, love, obsession, and probably the idiocy of relationships. I won’t say that it was a spectacular movie but it did get the job done.

Leo, who is (obviously) mute due to an accident in his childhood, tries to navigate the underworld in order to find his sweet Naadi. There are plenty of moments when you can see his desperation and even feel his anguish. This is the part where I give the director Duncan Jones a thumbs up. The emotions in the film are easy to interpret and for some Netflix movies that can be a sour subject.

Whether by design or the lack there of, some Netflix movies come across like the characters are reading from a book. Feelings are told rather than expressed, characters’ faces are left blank but their dialogue has so much emotional baggage that it makes me cringe.

Mute wasn’t all good either. There was a huge suspense gap for almost the majority of the movie. The characters while some of them were dynamic, others come across as flat in need of development. The flaws are so obvious in the movie that you don’t have to watch the whole thing to find them.

Despite the need for more dynamic characters, this movie had its moments of random beauty and grotesque exaggerations. If I had to take anything away from this 3 miles short of an excellent film, it would probably be something along the lines of life is all types of screwed up, but sometimes the creeper does get what’s coming to them. Even if it may take a while.

If you want to know if he finds her and how he stands up for himself, then watch the movie.

Tenet: What Is It And When Is It Out?

Published

What is TENET?

‘Tenet’ is the new film from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar) starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Kenneth Branagh. In terms of plot, very little is known about ‘Tenet’ but the plot synopsis reads as follows: “Armed with only one word — Tenet — and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.” Given that it’s Christopher Nolan, we know to expect something strange to do with time or non-linear storytelling but we just don’t quite know what…yet. Boasting a budget rumored to be over $200 million, ‘Tenet’ was filmed in seven countries around the world and includes some extraordinary action set pieces, including crashing a real 747 plane into a building (with no CGI)! It certainly promises to be a thrill ride that you don’t want to miss in cinemas.

When is Tenet out?

‘Tenet’ is scheduled to come out on July 17 but given COVID-19, many fans have been wondering if it will sadly get delayed. According to the film’s social accounts, it is still scheduled for July 17 but what’s interesting is that on the new trailer that dropped on May 22, rather than putting the film’s release date at the end, the trailer ended with the words “Coming to Theaters” which implies that the July 17 date isn’t firmly set in stone. It seems that Warner Bros. are aiming for July 17 but if cinemas aren’t open yet in big cities such as Los Angeles or New York, they may have to delay it to later on in the summer. But the film will definitely be released in cinemas as that’s something Christopher Nolan is very keen on. It certainly won’t be released on streaming and you will have to go to a cinema if you want to see it, it just depends on if that’s in the middle of July or later on in the summer once cinemas reopen.

Why is this film so important?

TENET is such an important film as it will be one of the first films to be released theatrically for months. The only film scheduled for release before Tenet is ‘Unhinged’ starring Russell Crowe, due to be released on July 1, but that seems a bit optimistic. Other than ‘Unhinged,’ ‘Tenet’ will be the first film shown in cinemas once they re-open and if ‘Tenet’ is a success and people return to cinemas, other summer blockbusters such asMulan’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984 can be released. 

Will you be going to see Tenet in cinemas on July 17?
