Dunkirk ★★★★½

Dunkirk is a masterfully constructed depiction of war put to film. It's shot, edited and directed so magnificently pulsing with powerful imagery in every frame. It's not a character-driven film though, and that will definitely feel underwhelming for some. However, like what many have been saying, this is a film singularly about war itself and placing the audience directly in the moment. And while it is thin in characterization, Nolan still manages to craft an astonishing piece of filmmaking that had me riveted from beginning to end. One of the most intense yet captivating cinematic experiences I've ever had.
