In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated
DUNKIRKK is one of the most intense and nerve-racking films I have ever watched. It shows a filmmaker in complete command of his craft, utilizing story structure and everything at his technical disposal to craft a film that feels unlike any World War II film I have ever seen.
Christopher Nolan for being cold and emotionless in his filmmaking, resulting in cynical stories that act as cerebral puzzle pieces. I’ve personally never understood this , even finding emotional catharsis in his most scientific and analytical films such as Batman movies franshines or INTERSTELLAR. Nolan, as a filmmaker, this definitely other great movie and masterpiece .
Christopher Nolan has always excelled at manipulating emotions in his films, and he does so with authoritative mastery with DUNKIRK. Nolan is fascinated by story structure, and how contorting that structure can result in something wholly unpredictable but concurrently fresh and exciting. DUNKIRK might be Nolan’s most successful film in that regard, expertly using both the visual and aural experience to immerse you in an experience that is at times both visceral and highly emotional. There have been complaints the characters in the film are ciphers, but I believe that is the point. There is no “point-of-view” character or discernible lead with a major arc or character trajectory. For the first time in Nolan’s repertoire, you are the character. You, as an audience member, transform as you experience the depths of a sinking ship or the terrifying heights of piloting a spitfire aircraft.
DUNKIRK the film feels like the heart rate of an EKG monitor, going up and down as each heart beat pulsates with life. You will feel your heart rate pulsate with this film, as each sequence builds, relaxes, and then builds again. It will even lull you into a false sense of victory, and then blindside you until it leaves you absolutely breathless. Nolan is at full command of his craft here, acting like a conductor expertly interweaving the different players of his orchestra to play in perfect harmony. The sound design, Hans Zimmer’s ticking score and the visuals all act in brilliant unison.
At 1 hour and 46 minutes, Nolan has created one of the finest WWII films I have ever seen. I think the best example I have seen is if you take the opening Normandy scene from SAVING PRIVATE RYAN and imagine that as a feature-length film that is what DUNKIRK is. It defies conventional narrative structure, avoids self-indulgent big speeches and focuses more on the visual and sensory nature of the story. As much as I enjoyed the film’s gorgeous dogfight cinematography – and this film .
I place DUNKIRK in Christopher Nolan’s impressive filmography just yet. I need to watch the film a couple more times to process the film more, and see where it sits. I was genuinely moved by this film, and some of the imagery and moments will stay with me for a very long time. I can say, without an unequivocal doubt, that DUNKIRK is one of Christopher Nolan’s best films and one of the best films, if not the best film, of the year so far. It proves that “less is more”, showing that when you regroup, rethink and re-structure how you approach your storytelling DUNKIRK is a lean, tense and powerful cinematic experience. It’s one of the most affecting experiences I’ve had watching a film in the large 70mm format. It’s simply one of the best films of the year.
