Dunkirk

Dunkirk

Writer-director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy) offers the finest film of his already impressive career with this epic yet intimate war story about the evacuation of Dunkirk, France during World War II. Nolan's ingenious script spins three stories at once, taking us to a week before the evacuation, a day before the evacuation and an hour before the evacuation. First, a terrified soldier tries to get off the bloody beach in France. Second, a fleet of ragtag private boats sets out from England to rescue the stranded army. Finally, a dedicated pilot runs a last-minute mission over the English Channel. As the time-fractured stories progress, they crash, successively, into one another. The result is a visceral, nerve-shredding and ultimately stirring portrait of the fear, chaos and heroism that surrounds war. FULL REVIEW: Christopher Nolan goes to war in a heart-pounding, historical drama about victory in the jaws of defeat by Devin D. O’Leary (7/20/2017). 106 minutes PG-13.
