    If Anything Happens I Love You

    ★★★

    I appreciate what this tries to achieve, but I doubt it's enough to sway anyone's views on gun control. The visual style is perfect to bring out the grief it carries and I like the creative "shadow" play too.

But he does have a point, and I found myself…

    Tension. Anxiety. Pain. Peace. Gruesome.. beauty.

    That's 1917 in a few words. Very happy I went to see this one in a cinema. Cinematography and sound mixing Oscars well deserved right here. Making a war movie look like one continuous shot is one thing, but making it also beautiful and emotional is another.
