Oppenheimer in 70mm

Thursday, Jan 4 at 6:30 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Christopher Nolan. 2023. U.S., 181 mins. 70mm. With Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey, Jr., Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Kenneth Branagh, David Krumholtz, Florence Pugh, Josh Hartnett, Tom Conti. Nolan’s surprise behemoth is the rare blockbuster devoted to psychological warfare and the weight of history. Murphy inhabits J. Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist and “father of the atomic bomb,” as though a haunting, an uncanny approximation of a man whose legacy is creation and destruction. Taking a kaleidoscopic, headlong dive into the miasma of the mid-twentieth century, Nolan reorients the biopic form around ideas—guilt, consciousness and mortality—while placing his wounded antihero at the center of a political maelstrom, as embodied by Downey’s power-hungry U.S. Energy Commissioner Lewis Strauss. Nolan’s film, a genuine box-office sensation, will be presented in 70mm. A Universal Pictures release.
