Dunkirk

Dunkirk ★★★★★

No director works around the timelines better than the great Chris Nolan.

For the most part, it seems that this is a silent film, inmmersing the audience into the action with no further explanations, just like the actual soldiers were in the film.

The different point of views of land, sea, and air (a week, an hour, and a day in their timelines, respectively) make this into a unique spectacle.

The common complaint is "lack of character development". That's exactly the point! This wasn't a character study or the portrait of someone. The main character was the action, the events, and the subsequent rescue (UNDERSTAND THAT, PEOPLE).

The visuals, sound, tense score, and the always masterful direction of Nolan made this into a film belonging to the class of the year 2017.
