  • Dunkirk

    Dunkirk

    ★★★★★

    I heard the working title was "Christopher Nolan WWII Trauma Simulator"

  • The Battle of Algiers

    The Battle of Algiers

    ★★★★★

    Almost every five minutes I marveled at how modern this seemed. Comments on:
    - waterboarding / enhanced interrogation
    - terrorism via driving into crowds
    - decentralized terrorist / resistance groups
    - false flag operations from the french government
    - sympathetic portrayal of both Algerians and French
    Also according to the wikipedia page the pentagon hosted a viewing so that the US might learn from France's failures how to be colonialists.

    Watched before Dunkirk and could definitely see Nolan taking notes re: sound design.
