Meditation by gunfire

I went into TENET not expecting to understand anything, and this was an entirely satisfying experience. As the Robert Pattinson character explains about the grandfather paradox, you’re not supposed to understand, it’s a paradox.

This I think is the intended meaning of the film. Lean into the confusion, because therein lies understanding.
