If you missed it before the Oscars, then try it.

Is there a new Steven Soderbergh film, which includes Erin Brockovich, Oceans Eleven, and, more recently, Logan Lucky? This crime thriller set in 1950s Detroit is divided into three categories: Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, Jon Hamm, and Amy Seimetz. While the plot is unfettered, Soderbergh''s sense of humor and dramatic direction make this caper an entertaining night in.
Tenet, which is a massive rewatches, is possible. Thanks to HBO Max''s release, you can now understand the plot that goes with its stunning visuals.

Tenet, perhaps the most Christopher Nolan of Christopher Nolan movies, is cerebral.
