So just watched the movie. Tiny detail I'm sure isn't that important. During the opera house sequence one of the fragments is captured by Sator but its also simultaneously at Siberia where the other op is happening. I guess they just invert it and take it there?

Ok and the Indian lady what's her deal? I don't recall them explaining why/how she knows the things she knows or her motivations. Also the way they meet seems so coincidental. Some bullets at the lab were made with metals that probably come from a region of India therefore this specific arms dealer must be a key character in this convoluted time travel plot? That gets settled with no exposition in like 2 cuts.

I think I'll need to rewatch some parts. I don't get how a notorious arms dealer has anything to do with time travel McMuffins. Does she have some relationship with Sator because he's also an arms dealer(?). Is she/has she always been part of Tenet?

Should have sent an inverted mega nuke back to when apes picked up tools.

Yeah its weird with people objects with opposite states interact with each other.

Also internet are saying the opera terries were inverted pincer team but you see them walking and shooting and throwing things forwards.

Wait wait wait what if you're inverted and you need to peepee or poopoo?

Like if you need to go way into the past to do a thing like they did on that ship they would have had to eat and poop multiple times.

So if youíre inverted and have a daily driver eventually the gas tank is going to get so full you have to go to a gas station to extract all the fuel.

Ok hear me out. What if you send your own peepee and poopoo through a turnstile. But just the excrement. Youíre still normal. Is it like bullets?

Wouldnít blue poop turn back into food? But the extracted nutrients and energy are still on the red side...

E: oh wait nm Iím dumb

Ok if figured it out. Before that whole army of inverted soldiers gets on that big ship to go to the final fight they need to bring with them a whole lot of inverted food and water. So from the POV of a normal person the peepee and poopoo goes back into the inverted crew. Or conversely they go through the turnstile on regular intervals to eat and drink on regular intervals instead of consuming inverting food and drink.

They also never show a machine big enough to fit a car unless they are doing it piecemeal and inverting a bunch of mechanics to put it back together.

The backpack talisman is made from the correct original source materials: a 1943 British India 1 Pice coin on some sacred Hindu thread called Mauli Kalawa.

Not 100% sure thatís what production made it from but itís very close. The holster strap I made.

The Algorithm section was designed by someone on CGTrader. I had a machine shop carve the model using a 5lb chunk of solid aluminum. The result is heavy but very satisfying to hold.

Lol thatís awesome. You should have gone full balls and contracted the algorithm piece out of stainless.

What was the point of the technicians exposition anyway? Itís never used in plot again. If Nolan wanted to introduce her as a potentially the future scientist he could have done it a much better way.

Also whatís with the thick rear end green gloves at the lab? Thatís a mechanic we never see again.

I just watched Tenet. It's a distillation of everything bad about Christopher Nolan movies. I got a headache watching it

Ok now watch it again but backwards it should make the headache go away.
