Popcorn Culture - Review: Oppenheimer

A 3 hour runtime, a film shot wholly for 70mm IMAX, a stacked cast including Cilian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr, Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, and arguably the most ambitious project by director Christopher Nolan. Question is - does Oppenheimer live up to all the hype? With practically no CGI, as claimed by Nolan himself, and a story based on one of the most important events in modern history - Robert Oppenheimer's role in the creation of the atomic bomb - this movie has all but ensured its place as a major awards contender. We review Oppenheimer and discuss its aggressive use of practical effects, Nolan's insistence on IMAX and rare premium formats, as well as Cilian Murphy's turn as a leading man on the big screen.
