Second World War.

From our review,

In its final stretch, oppenheimer uses the political campaign to discredit the physicist and undo his legacy as a way of getting under the skin of a man whose position on his terrible creation remains contradictory and enigmatic. After the overwhelming bomb sequences, that’s a surprisingly subtle and complex tactic for Nolan, but it works because the story is driven by the historical record and characters, rather than dogma, and the dire moral consequences emerge naturally. of the details. Nolan is not one to let any audience member miss his point, and the film’s final scene makes that clear. But first, he builds the web of ambition, commitment, dreams, politics, jealousy and inspiration (in a word, humanity) that unleashed the forces that amaze him. In oppenheimerMan is the most terrible machine of all.
