Comments: If I made this movie I'd be very proud of my work. But if I'd made it it would have been five hours long without including anything additional. It would have proceeded at a slower pace and would have been boring. My only complaint with the film Nolan made isn't really a complaint. It's a confession: I don't have the stamina to operate at the speed of Nolan's version

I was fearful Cillian Murphy would come up short in his portrayal of Oppenheimer. But (Nolan) Murphy pulls a fast one. About five minutes into the film Murphy ceases portraying Oppenheimer and becomes just some dude in a movie. He becomes his own character, which is an amazing feat when you consider the whole film is about nothing more than how quick thinking and confident Oppenheimer is, and how intense all the things he engaged with are

So this is a superhero movie. We don't get to know J Robert Oppenheimer. It's not a Bio-film. We get to worship how awesome the thing is, how awesome the Oppenheimer is. I'm not slinging hagiographical mud here. The film is what it is. It's not something anyone else gets an opinion about what it is supposed to be or should have been. It's a skyrocket. Spend time trying to keep it away, catch your breath and google whether Ludwig Göransson ever studied with Philip Glass. It has a lovely soundtrack, but not all the special effects or sound design work (oops, that's a complaint)

Summary: The story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb.
