Christopher Nolan’s Approach Of Possibility Over Nihility

Christopher Nolan‘s uniqueness when it comes to his movies has been exceptional and beyond successful in attracting an audience. However, one aspect of his movies includes a more hopeful approach toward the conclusions no matter how the course of the film may have been.

“The ambiguity is not an emotional ambiguity. It’s an intellectual one for the audience. It’s funny, I think there is an interesting relationship between the endings of Inception and Oppenheimer to be explored. Oppenheimer’s got a complicated ending. Complicated feelings.”

When asked about his approach against nihility, the director agreed that somewhere, he likes to see a different view of the ending. There can always be a more interesting look that is against nihility, such was the case with Inception. Although, Nolan also assured that Oppenheimer has a much different ending. He stated that the complicated nature of the movie will continue throughout its course and will not falter even till the end, leaving the audience open with complicated feelings as the credits roll.

“I mean, there’s an element of fear that’s there in the history and there in the underpinnings. But the love of the characters, the love of the relationships, is as strong as I’ve ever done.”

The look of war, death, and disaster are massively visible throughout the movie, and they leave a lasting impression. A sense of fear can rise within the audience and the way he weaved the relationship between the characters, he saw it amongst everyone around as well.

Oppenheimer is set to release on 21 July 2023.
