Peter Fenzel and Matthew Wrather enjoyed the final James Bond film with Daniel Craig, No Time to Die, overthinking it from every angle, from parsing the title to exploring the film’s surprising dichotomy, dualism, and dialectic. What has changed, what hasn’t changed, and will this film champion Bond-ness or consign him as a relic to the dustbin of history?

I was frankly a little disappointed with NTTD, Bond films should be more fun. That said, I do agree that NTTD is a Jack Bauer solution to a James Bond problem, both in mourning the loss of a happy, normal life and all in appearance. Note the handsome, weathered physical presence of the two JBs in question. That can’t be a coincidence.
