Christopher Nolan’s biopic of J Robert Oppenheimer (the father of the atomic bomb) is unlike any other. The film focuses on the man himself and his relationships with those around him. There are two basic storylines, and the film shifts back and forth between them. His life up to developing the bombs and the eventual loss of his security clearance (thanks in large part to early Communist connections and his outspoken opposition to developing a hydrogen bomb) is shot in color. These scenes are interspersed with black and white scenes of the 1959 Senate confirmation hearing of the former chair of the Atomic Energy Commission, who is revealed as playing a critical role in stripping away Oppenheimer’s security clearance five years earlier. The visuals and sound throughout the film provoke a visceral experience in the viewer. As one reviewer said : ’As a physical experience, Oppenheimer is something else entirely—it’s hard to say exactly what, and that’s what’s so fascinating about it.’
