Saw the movie (finally.) I quite enjoyed it, but I agree with Jake Yeston on Twitter - there wasn't enough physics. For that matter, there wasn't enough chemistry in it either. But it did a wonderful job of letting us into the mind of Oppenheimer, and it allowed us a sense of the dynamic between the towering minds of the Manhattan Project, and how Oppie was the best one to navigate the decisions. I quite enjoyed Matt Damon's portrayal of Leslie Groves as well. Ran a bit long, I admit. All in all, I'm glad I saw it.
