To be clear, the rewatch upgraded my opinion from “flawed and didn’t really like it” to “flawed and liked it enough to think on it a good deal”. I’d say that’s real praise.
Legitimately crummy movies don’t improve with a second viewing.
Christopher Nolan’s heart is in the right place. He’s not my bag in terms of craftsmanship, but he’s an ambitious guy and he seems like he’d be awesome to get hammered with and talk about mindfuckery.
