Because I am a 74-year-old diabetic with kidney problems, I will NOT be seeing Oppenheimer, as much as I would like to.

I would agree with leaving out an intermission if all departments involved with this film were refused restroom breaks during their work periods.

But knowing no one involved with the production was denied a restroom break, but I, a viewer am denied, I do not wish to pay the price of admission to have to miss out on part of the movie only to purchase a second ticket to see what I missed the first time around.

Hollywood needs to consider the reality of the needs of some audience members when making these monstrosities without a break to allow us to void our kidneys.
