Wars Can Be Won by Evacuations

Considering he has already tackled sci-fi, action, mystery, drama, fantasy and thrillers - it seems that war is the next natural step for Christopher Nolan. A director who I have been impressed with ever since Memento - Nolan's films always capture your attention and rarely follows the rules. Memento played tricks with memory, Interstellar did the same with time and what could have been a standard war film turns into something much more mesmerizing and gripping.

Dunkirk is told from three different perspectives: a young soldier (Fionn Whitehead) stationed with hundreds of thousands of other men on the beaches, awaiting rescue or death; a civilian man (Mark Rylance), his son (Tom Glynn-Carney) and his son's friend (Barry Keoghan) as they pilot a yacht, having been one of hundreds of boa...

When they couldn't get home, home came for them..

Christopher Nolan takes a break from science fiction and superhero fare to deliver a harrowing, thrilling, and surprisingly inspiring war film with DUNKIRK.
Don't be fooled by the PG13 rating. Dunkirk is as intense and nail-biting as HACKSAW RIDGE or SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. Nolan adopts a minimalist approach to a nonlinear narrative which sounds confusing at first but it makes sense by the end. We the audience see the disastrous retreat at Dunkirk evolve into the heroic rescue and evacuation of 300,000 trapped British soldiers unfold in 3 separate but overlapping stories. One by air, one by sea, and the last by land.
The all-British cast does well even if I admittedly didn't learn some of their names until the end credits. Harry Styles might seem out of place in a war epic like this but ...

I'm sure it'll win prizes.Not "Film of the year"

"Wars are not won by evacuation."

I'm sure there are already as many reviews about Christopher Nolan's last movie about the battle of Dunkirk, as there were British soldiers on the beach of Dunkirk waiting for their evacuation. An awful lot. Although it wasn't a battle in the strict sense of the word, but rather a massive logistical operation to get the English army back on British soil. Whether this operation had any influence on the course of the 2nd WO, is something for military strategists and analysts to determine.

In my opinion, there was an incomprehensible blunder made by the German commanders. Fortunately, because sauerkraut isn't really my favorite dish. It's not a chapter in this terrible world war, with heroic battles taking place. A bold choice, but neverthele...

Dunkirk - Review


You can love, hate or call him overrated all you want, but you've got to give respect to Christopher Nolan for going this old school. Nothing like cardboard props for background soldiers, inspired by the silence films era with little dialogue, and going full practical. The attention to details with scope and intensity making the overall experience harsh, but masterfully well made. Nolan has made something extraordinary and proven why he's the best living film maker working today. All of his movies have this grand scale to it, but never feels hollow.

Watching "Dunkirk" on the IMAX screen was such a overwhelming and frightening experience, but perfectly captures the terror of war those men faced. It got me pretty emotional towards the end. Gunshots sound li...
