A different kind of war story, Nolan delivers an immersive drama of the everyday boy just trying to survive and get back home during WWII. Fragmented and with minimal dialogue, Dunkirk provides unexpectedly engaging stories from trapped soldiers, fighter pilots and civilians trying to do their part.
With few action sequences, this film shows the grit of war through intense cinematography and such raw emotion you'll be sweating it out even after the credits start rolling. A powerful masterpiece made to be seen on the big screen.
Reminds me of:
- Deepwater Horizon
- Pearl Harbor
- Saving Private Ryan
