Director Christopher Nolan always seems to make interesting movies mixing great actors, visuals, and story. OPPENHEIMER is the latest film from the director in what is one of the best films of his career and the year 2023.

OPPENHEIMER is the story of physicist Robert Oppenheimer and the race to make the atomic bomb before the Nazis do. The story mixes with the narrative of what happens afterwards and a politician's attempt to cancel Oppeneheimer. The movie is a visual poem that could be a half hour shorter, but OPPENHEIMER isn't a slow drama at all. It is an engaging biopic on the father of the atomic bomb and how Oppenheimer felt about the atomic bomb after a team of scientist successfully tested it. The cast is great with Cillian Murphy (as the title character) and Robert Downey Jr (as a politician) as the stand out performances.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
There are over three hours of bonus features on a separate blu-ray disc including a couple of documentaries, a Q and A, a featurette on black and white IMAX film stock created for the movie, and a documentary on the real Oppenheimer.

THE STORY OF OUR TIME: MAKING OPPENHEIMER- a multi-part making of documentary on the making of the movie. This making-of documentary is the only extra that is available with the digital copy of the movie.
INNOVATIONS IN FILM: 65 MM BLACK AND WHITE FILM IN OPPENHEIMER- a featurette from FotoKem as the filmmakers talk about the challenge of making black and white film for IMAX and how it was used in sequences in the movie

MEET THE PRESS Q&A PANEL: OPPENHEIMER- Writer/ Director Christopher Nolan is joined by one of the writers of American Prometheus, a couple of physicists, and the current director of the Los Almos Atomic commission as they talk about the film, how politics are intertwined with atomic weapons, and how the physics (and characters) are portrayed in the movie
TO END ALL WAR: OPPENHEIMER AND THE ATOMIC BOMB- a documentary on Oppenheimer and the race to make the atomic bomb and the aftermath felt afterwards through today

FINAL ANALAYSIS: OPPENHEIMER is a great movie and one of the best from 2023. The wealth of extras makes this one of the best discs of the year with a great visual/ audio presentation of the movie,
