The Odeon of Death takes a look at the month’s events through the medium of cinema – this time a mind-bending sci-fi espionage thriller

Tenet’s Extra (2020)

It’s the mind-bending sci-fi espionage thriller the critics are calling “Conservatism on acid”

Due to a mutant algorithm, a CIA operative enters an inverted world, in which the US president is spearheading a #BLM drive, the Prime Minister of Great Britain is an honest, loyal, and exceptionally competent and capable humanist who roots out corruption wherever he finds it, and a much-loved Vladimir Putin is celebrated for his old-fashioned hospitality, routinely inviting his opponents round and making them a restorative cup of tea.

The Odeon of Death can be found on Twitter at, perhaps not altogether surprisingly, @OdeonofDeath.
