Dunkirk ★★★★

Seeing this on IMAX 70mm should end the film/digital debate for anyone with even one functional eyeball.

Nerve shredding, confidently constructed, and rendered almost entirely in visuals (this could work just as beautifully as a silent film with a few intertitles).

The sense of dread is apocalyptic - as it truly was. The Nazis, who we never even see on screen, function as an ever-present force of doom. I love that it doesn't dumb itself down for a mass audience, how primal its depiction of fear is, and how simple and small its moments of heroism.

PS
Tom Hardy should be the biggest movie star on the planet.
