Dunkirk

Dunkirk ★★★★

70mm wew

It's hard not to admire Nolan's craft as a director in Hollywood that is given as much freedom as he has on his films. The storytelling in Dunkirk is remarkable. Non-linear structure works really well with engaging the viewer and discovering characters. 

There's barely any lines of dialogue. The silence is perfect and speaks a ton about storytelling. It works. 

I can't say enough about the scene towards the end with a blind man. That moment puts the entire film and the soldiers who experienced the war into perspective. Every person involved in this war/rescue had a different understanding of the situation depending on their perspective. Can't go into detail without tuning really special moments, but it's handle incredibly well.

Going to see it again on Sunday because unfortunately my theater experience wasn't very good. Over a dozen people sitting on their phones.
