Episode 79: Oppenheimer

This week on Philosophy in Film, the gang takes on Christopher Nolan’s explosive biographical thriller, Oppenheimer. With an all-star cast including Cillian Murphy, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr., and many others, this film explores the life and dilemma surrounding physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his contributions to the Manhattan Project, along with the consequences that resulted. The discussion ignites with Producer’s Notes (8:31) and the Beauclair Synopsis (19:02). Then Chris sets the conversation ablaze with Philosopher’s Corner (32:54), leading the gang to discuss morality and much more in The Round Table (48:54). Finally, opinions clash head to head as the Reviews (1:33:05) drop, unearthing the Mailbag (1:40:48) in their wake. As always, we discuss the philosophical and non-philosophical aspects of the movie that caught our attention. #HatDilemma
