"There's no hiding from this."

-Mark Rylance gets all the "tumblr gifset caption" lines and that's totally fine
-this was honestly better the second time and the sound was actually better not in imax, who knew
-war is an all encompassing hell
-paranoia and ptsd are some of my favorite themes to see explored onscreen, even if dunkirk only touches on both somewhat briefly
-i sure wish tom hardy could get oscar nominated for this because my god
-who doesn't cry at the Boats
-at a few points in the movie but especially the very end you're forced to remember that they're really just children and that's sort of heartbreaking? i feel like usually the men in war movies tend to be aged up for the sake of appearing masculine and tough but they're just boys
-further the movie sort of glances at the various reasons someone goes to war and it's interesting to see the different perspectives, some more sympathetic or courageous than others, but all grounded in reality
-i have more to say but this is so rambly and long and the more i talk the more i love the movie so i'll just stop now i guess......Loved It!
