Dunkirk ★★★½


Las Vegas Weekly review. A film I admire enormously for its conceptual ambition and technical bravado, but was never shaken by in the way that Nolan clearly would have hoped. See also: Interstellar. Need to see both of those again, though.

(Also, I think I was distracted here by the week/day/hour thing, constantly trying to determine whether "The Mole" had caught up with the other two yet.)

((Plus the week really doesn't seem like a week, does it? More like two or three days. I'd suggest the structure is unnecessary were it not for Cillian Murphy's brief but superlatively disorienting appearance in "The Mole."))
