Dunkirk

There is no review for this diary entry. Add a review?

Here is a war movie that's all about process: A celebration of duty, not destruction. Moving large groups of men around, marshalling boats, measuring airplane fuel, finding enough food and tea for hundreds of thousands of stranded boys who just want to go home, figuring out what to do with the French. I think sound design that employs a constant ticking and Hans Zimmer's overwrought score is a wrongheaded choice, but otherwise this is exceptional, one of the best war movies ever made (caveat: I don't like many war movies), and second in Nolan's body of work only to The Prestige.
