Dunkirk (2017) – A Rewatched Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Dunkirk defines both the best and the worst of Christopher Nolan films – a masterclass of filmmaking for sure but with a script that needed a bit more work and characters who barely register five minutes after you leave the screen.  And yup Tom Hardy’s back in full “What did he say” mumble mode. But for every (very minor) quibble I have, this is one expertly made film and one of the most tense movie watching experiences I can ever remember.  Form the action to the music, the effects to the tension – it’s filmmaking at its most innovate and masterful.  Rewatching Dunkirk i’m even more blown away a few years on. Dunkirk, on reflection, could well be one of the best films of 2017.

Best Bit: The structure

Worth A Rewatch: Hell yes

If You Liked this Try: Interstellar, Battle of Britain, Saving Private Ryan 

9 out of 10 stars
