There’s been an unfortunate trend in cinema discourse over the past decade or more. Several trends, really. They are all related, and each is worse than the last. One: The prudish, anti-sex scene brigade, who seem to think that films should only reflect some sort of sterile and miserable, Marvel-ified life devoid of intimacy or carnal desire. Two: The fear of vibes and atmosphere, and weirdly mechanical obsession with stories only being made up of events that ‘move the plot forward’. And three: The fixation on ‘plot holes’. None of these may be new, and these sort of things tend to go in cycles, but social media has made their recent proliferation extra visible, and extra annoying. Anti-art masquerading as anti-elitist populism.

The thing that’s particularly annoying about the plot holes stuff is that not only do actual inconsistencies or otherwise misaligned elements in plot not really matter when everything else is done well, so often the things being called out as plot holes are not even plot holes! Reddit had this topic on its mind recently when it asked the question: ‘Which infamous movie plot hole has an explanation that you’re tired of explaining?’ You can check out the full thread here, but below are some highlights:
