TENET is a strange masterpiece that takes a lot of brain power and concentration to understand but the one thing that blares into one’s senses and announces itself from the very get-go is the music.
Sticking to Hans Zimmer’s distinct and broody musical theme, Ludwig Göransson brought a flavor to this film that felt unlike anything I’ve heard before. Filled with synthesized beats that vibrated your senses in IMAX and a vague Western-sounding theme for The Protagonist, this movie never lets up. Just listen to this piece here for the very beginning of the film and you’ll understand why this score deserves an Oscar nomination.
It sticks into the soul, becoming as much a piece of the movie as the characters and plot. And like the film, it never lets up. It doesn’t apologize for its occasional assault on your neurons or its constant presence. It is a powerful piece of music that feels so perfect with this film and yeah, I love it!
I’ve already saved a few pieces on my Spotify because I love it that much.
