1917 ★★★

It’s as wide as an ocean, and as deep as a wading pool.

1917 exemplifies three of my pet-peeves with Hollywood: 
1. Manipulative scores
2. Cool but ultimately reductive gimmicks
3. Stunt Casting

The fact that despite all of that I left the cinema thinking “Hey, that was pretty good” is a testament to it’s technical brilliance if nothing else.
