Improves on a repeat viewing, I reckon.
To be honest, I only really watched this because Jodie Whittaker is in it. That and for someone reason I was expecting this to be like a British indie version of Super 8. It is probably decent, but wasn't really my kind of thing. Wouldn't re-watch it. Thankfully it's quite short cos I had difficulty finding interesting things about it, also kinda found the main characters quite fucking annoying.
Watch Super 8, it's better.
I feel bad saying that this isn't Nolan's best, but then this is the guy who gave us Memento and The Prestige, so for him the bar has been set pretty high.
Dunkirk really does seem to favour the setting and the events it's depicting as a storytelling device instead of developing any of the characters. The English civilians were not too bad but some of the soldiers were barely distinguishable sometimes.
Hans Zimmer yet again provides a glorious score…
