    1917

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Of course, the praise of 1917 must start with the cinematographer Roger Deakins. The use of long takes has the entire film appear as one continuous shot, resulting in an almost single shot masterpiece.

Good device of dramatic irony, as the audience presumably are aware of Ted's crimes but are…
