Christopher Nolan is one of the biggest, most respected, and most exciting filmmakers on this planet. His films are a fine example of brilliantly bridging the gap between arthouse sensibilities with blockbuster storytelling. Oppenheimer, his recent film, was released today and people cannot stop raving about it. In an interview with physicist Brian Cox, the filmmaker talked about an array of topics.
He opened up about J. Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist who spearheaded the Manhattan Project that built the world’s first nuclear weapons. Nolan feels that Oppenheimer was full of “paradoxes and ethical dilemmas.” He then talked about how the physicist never apologized for his creation after America bombed Nagasaki and Hiroshima in Japan.
Nolan said, “As with everything related to Oppenheimer, you can view things in very contradictory ways. If you look at it from the perspective of 2023, there are two ways to interpret his post-war actions. Although he was an eloquent and careful speaker, he never apologised for the bombings of Japan, nor did he express personal shame about his role in it. Nevertheless, all of his actions and policies post-1945 reflect those of a deeply guilty man, very aware of the consequences of his actions.”
The Film Received U/A Certificate From CBFC
Oppenheimer is Nolan’s first R-rated film since the 2002’s Insomnia. So when it was sent for certification to the censor board in India, fingers were crossed. But the makers had already removed some sexual scenes from the film in a way that won’t affect the viewer’s experience. The CBFC only asked the team to mute the word ‘a*****e’ and to also remove it from the subtitles. After that, it was given a U/A certificate. A scene where the protagonist engages in sexual activity with Florence Pugh while reading Bhagwat Gita has been retained.

It is slated to release theatrically on 21 June.
