Christopher Nolan‘s film ‘Oppenheimer‘ premiered at Le Grand Rex in Paris on July 11, 2023. Reports from the premiere describe it as powerful, with Cillian Murphy delivering an awards-worthy performance. The entire ensemble cast excels, and Christopher Nolan’s remarkable and haunting vision is brought to life by Hoyte van Hoytema’s breathtaking execution.
According to @BrandonDavisBD, “Oppenheimer is my film of the year. Christopher Nolan makes three hours fly in stunning form. Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. are incredibly strong. The story is chilling in the tragic sense of World War II’s lack of humanity and on intimate human levels. Stunning and scary.”
According to @ErikDavis, “Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is fantastic—big and bold with electrifying performances and incredibly visceral pacing to it. It’s both quietly intimate and a ferocious moviegoing experience at the same time. See it in IMAX 70mm, and it’ll be among your favorite watches of 2023.”
According to @ldbahr, “Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is truly a spectacular achievement, in its truthful, concise adaptation, inventive storytelling, and nuanced performances from Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, and the many, many others involved—some just for a scene.
According to @mattmaytum, “Oppenheimer left me stunned: a character study on the grandest scale, with a sublime central performance by Cillian Murphy. An epic historical drama but with a distinctly Nolan sensibility: the tension, structure, sense of scale, startling sound design, and remarkable visuals. Wow.
