Christopher Nolan's latest spy movie, "Tenet," is a mind-bending action thriller in which an intelligence agent is sent on a time-bending mission to prevent World War III. It stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, with Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.
Much like Nolan's previous hits "Inception" and "Memento," it plays with concepts of time and does not follow a linear narrative. So it's no wonder audiences have been left puzzled by what it all means.
We break down the final three scenes of "Tenet" and try to unpack its ending.
"Tenet" was released worldwide on August 26 and is scheduled to be in select US theaters on September 3.
