Christopher Nolan says that Oppenheimer is full of paradoxes and moral dilemmas
MUMBAI, July 12 (IANS) Filmmaker Christopher Nolan, known for films like ‘Memento’, ‘The Dark Knight’, ‘Inception’, ‘Tenet’ and more, is gearing up for his upcoming release, ‘Oppenheimer’. Ahead of the release, the director shared that the story of ” Oppenheimer,” which is based on the nuclear physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, is riddled with paradoxes and ethical dilemmas.
Nolan spoke about what ignited the fire within him to tell the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer: “The Oppenheimer story is one of the great stories out there. It’s full of paradoxes and moral dilemmas, and that’s the kind of material I’m always interested in. While the film tries to help the audience understand why people do the things they did it, it asks at the same time “Should they have done the things they did?”.
He also stated: “Movies, as a narrative medium, are uniquely suited to draw the audience into a subjective experience, allowing them to judge things the way characters judge them, while at the same time looking at these characters a little more objectively.” Oppenheimer and take the audience on his emotional journey. That was the challenge of the film: to tell the story of a person involved in what ultimately was an extraordinarily devastating sequence of events, but done for the right reasons, and to tell it from his point of view.”
Produced by Universal Pictures (distributed by Warner Bros. Discovery), Oppenheimer’s film will be released on July 21 across theaters in India with pre-bookings open across IMAX theaters in India.
