    Dunkirk

    ★★★★½

    Dunkirk is a film that's destined to be studied and dissected in film school classrooms everywhere for years to come. The film is a straight up masterclass in technical achievement that excels in everything from cinematography, editing, visual effects, sound design and sound mixing.

It seems that in his never-ending quest to please the rabid Star Wars fan base, director J.J. Abrams felt the need to adhere…
