Tenet Pitch Meeting

I watched the movie Tenet & several trailers & featurettes & reviews & explained videos & analysis videos et cetera about it, and this video did the best job breaking down the movie in a way that made it make sense while also showing the flaws of the movie; I now understand Tenet better than ever thanks to this video, thank you. 😀

Tenet (Film)

What is it?

The 2020 science fiction spy action thriller movie Tenet.

Tenet Trailer #1 (2020) | Movieclips Trailers
Behind-the-Scenes of Tenet with Christopher Nolan, John David Washington, Robert Pattinson & More

This is how The IMDb describes this movie:

Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.

In a twilight world of international espionage, an unnamed CIA operative, known as The Protagonist, is recruited by a mysterious organization called Tenet to participate in a global assignment that unfolds beyond real time.

The mission: prevent Andrei Sator, a renegade Russian oligarch with precognition abilities, from starting World War III.

The Protagonist will soon master the art of “time inversion” as a way of countering the threat that is to come.

Dreams

Avoiding Electricity | The Boss (The Protagonist)?

Source: Wikipedia

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, and I was possibly public school age again.

I was somewhere that I can not remember when I met my former male classmate AM who was also public school age again, and he invited me to his parent’s house where he lived so we talked and we went to his house (I assume that we walked).

Once we arrived at his house he told me that we had to be very quiet and I remember us sneaking into the house, he seemed to be afraid of his mom and / or something like that, and he had not asked for permission to bring over guests I assume.

I assume that his mom was either gone or sleep, his dad was probably gone, because I did not see or hear either of them as we sneaked around.

My former classmate AM seemed to be having problems in his home life, I am not sure what but I could tell, and maybe he told me a few things before we arrived at the house but I can not remember.

And that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was outside during the day with mostly children and other public school age people, maybe there were some other adults as well, but I can not remember.

I want to assume that many of the people were students, and we were moving through an area between several one-story buildings (maybe brick).

This area had some concrete slabs that were like small courts with dirt and grass areas between them, and there were several overhead power lines in this area.

As we were walking one or more of the power lines started to make a noise like something was wrong, we saw and heard electricity sparking and I guess the power line or several power lines broke, and they hung on the ground sparking and blocking some of us between several downed power lines.

We all stopped and we could feel the static electricity getting closer and we could see and hear it sparking toward us up to a point, and after that you could just feel and slightly hear it.

Fortunately it would stop briefly and recede but it would start-up again, and so we had to time our movements so that we could escape this situation.

So we had to look, listen, and feel out the situation and jump and move during the short breaks between when the electricity charges and stops, this was pretty intense and realistic, and we had to work together including those who were not trapped.

I can not remember if we all made it out before I woke up, I know that I was close and that no one died, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

I am not sure if I was myself in this dream or if I was the default male player character The Boss (The Protagonist or Playa) from the Saints Row video games or if I was even in this dream or not, I am not sure, but I do know that The Boss was the main character.

The Boss had a girlfriend with light-color skin with long dark-color hair who was possibly animated or was a computer-generated (CGI) video game character who possibly somewhat looked like my former female classmate LC and maybe a Snow White-like woman, maybe The Boss was animated or CGI as well, and maybe some of the other dream character but I can not remember; but I do know that the dream world itself was normal (live action).

The Boss and his girlfriend were traveling around with a group of other people, and at the end of the dream they were on one of the upper floors of a nice modern mostly glass multi-story building that was possibly a skyscraper.

They were possibly in a nice hotel or apartment suite or something, but I can not remember.

They had a good view of the outside and of the buildings and area below because there were no curtains and the walls / windows were glass.

I remember them talking and I remember that most of the people did not seem to like The Boss’s girlfriend, especially the women in the group, and I remember there being a lot of back and forth and arguing between The Boss’s girlfriend and some of the others.

The Boss had to stop some of the arguments, he seemed to be in charge and / or the other people respected him, and so they listened to The Boss and they tried to put up with his girlfriend.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

When I got out of bed to get ready for work and voice record my dreams I started thinking about my older dreams first, I remembered my last dream, but before I could reach the living room to voice record my dreams I ended up mostly forgetting this dream.

This dream was possibly connected to or similar to one or more of the previous dreams in some unknown way, there was possibly something repetitive that happened where maybe I had to choose between several things several times, and maybe language learning was in one part of the dream but I can not remember.

Unfortunately that is all that I can remember of this remembered but then forgotten dream.

The end,
