Caption: T. Rex's Oscar Seriouses
T. Rex: Oppenheimer, dir. Christopher Nolan!
T. Rex: At its heart the film is a study of complicity - to what degree are the horrors of the atom bomb the moral responsibility of the scientists who create it? Does technological skill somehow distance one, ethically, from technology's consequences?
T. Rex: There are thematic echoes of previous BP nominee, 1974's The Conversation (dir. Francis Ford Coppola)...
Utahraptor: We're losing the audience, T.! Say something wacky, quick!
T. Rex: No can do, Utah! I'm serious now!
Caption: But, on Letterboxd...
T. Rex: this film is the bomb... the ATOM BOMB, that is!!!
