1917 ★★★★

It's easy to chalk up Sam Mendes' 1917 as simply a great technical achievement, which it is - the long takes are stupendous and a marvel to behold - but they're really effective in pushing forth this narrative and the sense of urgency as these two soldiers cross behind enemy lines to save their fellow comrades.

Brutal, scary, beautiful and powerful, this brilliant filmmaking that doesn't simply rely on spectacle but also tells an intimate, unforgettable story.

See it on the big screen!
