Dunkirk ★★★½

71/100


The sound design is great, it's shot really well, but without a solid story to back it up and/or characters I care about, it doesn't amount to nearly as much as I would've liked.  I'm glad that Nolan decided to reign himself in and focus on a smaller, simpler story than the mess that is Interstellar, but what's great about the Nolan movies that I love is that they tackle ideas that aren't done in film either ever or often and do something that was previously thought to be unfilmable. Dunkirk, at the end of the day, is just a war movie, and frankly, it's a pretty forgettable one. If Nolan's name weren't on it, no one would be talking about it.
