Documentary examining the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer and the creation of the atomic bomb. Some interesting insights, but I think this would be much better watching this before seeing the dramatized version. Still a fascinating story regardless. Rented on Amazon Prime.
A hilariously fictionalized version of Al’s life. Tons of comedians and cameos and just fuckin hilarious, plus a bunch of his best songs. Can’t believe it took me so his long to watch it. Streaming free on Roku.
The story of the American scientist and his role in the development of the atomic bomb. Certainly in the conversation for Nolan’s best film, but it’s also possibly the biggest departure for what he’s been known for. Absolutely fascinating stuff, and I am still thinking about it. Only real complaint is that you definitely feel the 3 hours.
Christopher Nolan: “Like it or not, J. Robert Oppenheimer is the most important person who ever lived. He made the world that we live in for better or for worse.”
