chess’s review published on Letterboxd:
the score...the sound... dunkirk has the wonder of a silent film with it's limited dialogue, and yet every other part of it is so loud. absolutely immersing, from the incessant gunshots, to the ticking of the metronome, there is barely time to breathe. the ensemble cast is very endearing; multiple plotlines that come together through jumps in time. people connecting and stories intersecting in a way that's so raw and satisfying, we feel empathy before they've even said a word.
a breathtaking experience in time travel; a 106 minute snapshot of a week, a day, and an hour, where the audience are integral. we visit dunkirk, 1940, and we are hanging on to every second. from the first frame to the last, we are there
