DUNKIRK (2017) Review
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Whenever writer and director Christopher Nolan makes a film, everything’s hyped. Understandable as the guy makes films that are worth experiencing. He’s one of those filmmakers that pushes the boundaries of filmmaking, always trying to offer something new, something different. And Dunkirk is no different from that.
In short, Dunkirk is a triumph. The technicalities of the film is immensely crafted. The shots are beautiful and at times scary. Scary because it captures some of the terrifying moments at sea and in a war.
The main attraction of the film though is Hans Zimmer’s musical score of the film. From the start of the film, the bass of the audio will take you to the tension of the war and how its characters felt in those scenes, be it in a sinking ship or a crowd that’s being open fired by the enemy’s air force.
Dunkirk is filmmaking at its best. Each scene, each frame is carefully planned and executed the best way possible. Not only that it impressively highlights every scene through cinematography and musical scoring, there is an unexpected emotional juice in the film that will leave you in awe of all the mixed emotions you can get from soldiers who are fighting for their country and for their lives.
Christopher Nolan yet again, gave us something huge, emotionally and visually. Dunkirk is a riveting war movie that goes way further than any other war films had done before. It’s an experience that will let you feel the fear and the call for celebration for surviving the hell of being in a war.
