'Dunkirk', directed by Christopher Nolan, has finally hit the theaters and is raking positive reviews for its intense plot. The drama thriller narrates the tale of the heroic mission conducted on the beaches of Dunkirk that resulted in the safe evacuation of 3,30,000 soldiers who were stranded on the beach during Germany's invasion of France.
Read the reviews here:
In re-creating the large-scale troop evacuations in the early part of the second world war, Nolan has not only taken on a cornerstone national myth – the “little boats”, “we shall fight on the beaches” and all that – but he has also made a film as stylistically bold as anything Kubrick engineered.
Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk feels like a salve. Its visual and sound effects are elaborate and impressive. This is a grand spectacle, not an empty one, a rare example of the Hollywood blockbuster dollar well spent.
It's a frightening, thrilling opening, but the thing that strikes you is the sound. Nolan likes the confrontational energy of high volume effects, and the sound of the bullets whooshing and spitting leaps out of the sound mix. The rest of the film proceeds with a similar intensity.
The best war movies of the last 20 years, including Saving Private Ryan and Hacksaw Ridge, have also placed viewers in the center of the battle. Nolan has not reinvented that immersive approach, but he comes close to perfecting it.
