Dunkirk is a 2017 English-language war film written, co-produced and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film stars Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy, Barry Keoghan, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, and Tom Hardy. Set during the Second World War, it portrays the Dunkirk evacuation. Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, the film is an international co-productionbetween the United Kingdom, the United States, France, and the Netherlands.

Nolan wrote the script, told from three perspectives—the land, sea, and air—to contain little dialogue and create suspense solely through details. Filming began in May 2016 in Dunkirk, France, and ended in Los Angeles, United States, where it also began post-production. Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema shot the film on IMAX 65 mm and 65 mm large formatfilm stock. The film made extensive use of practical effects, such as employing thousands of extras, assembling boats that had participated in the real Dunkirk evacuation, and using genuine era-appropriate planes for aerial sequences.

Bruce Lee says:

Thesis: this movie missed a developed first and third act. It's well crafted but hollow. I expected more from Nolan. Maybe his next film will feel more complete.

Nicholas Warner says:

Thing is and I'm talking as a Brit although born in Christchurch New Zealand, everyone in the Empire knows the story. Its a brilliant And extremely accurate (if not totally literally correct) impression of a miraculous historic event. The aerial sequences were the best yet…Masterpiece. I am a communist by the way and the patriotic musical cues ruined it. I saw it 4 times.

Nicholas Warner says:

Its my first time, watching this channel.

Tor Berggren says:

Coming into this with a previous interest in military history (and especially WWII) definitely helped me getting into it.
I wonder if there isn't also a factor that perhaps us europeans experienced this film in a different way due too the nature WWII had here on the Western Front in Europe as opposed too much of the Pacific and post Operation Torch and D-Day warfare that the US was more directly involved in. Dunkirk being an event far more ingrained in our history (even those of us from countries that weren't combatants at Dunkirk) feels too me like it could've made the way Nolan choose too portray this event more easy too 'get past'.

Also very glad with, although it was a small part of the film, the French contribution too the evacuation was dealt with. The french cowards joke is all too common when you look at their actual history. In this case especially look up The Siege of Lille which tied-up German forces that could have made a difference at Dunkirk and the French holding the line at Dunkirk while the Brits were evacuating their army.

Watchalong for The Prestige!

Corey Galvan says:

Would you guys every do a Van Damme movie?

Richard Jarvi says:

Guys.. bridge of spies is a worthy watch. Just give it a try it, you wont be disapointed. Trust me! Its way better than you think! Its one of my top 2016 movies.

André Raymond says:

There is a category of World War Two movies that aesthetically challenge the audience. Son Of Saul, Thin Red Line or Hell In The Pacific. To a minor degree the first twenty minutes of Saving Private Ryan or The Iron Cross. The directors incorporated different narrative gambits. The level of violence in SPR and the grotesquery of Peckinpah in Cross Of Iron. The close up continuous take in Son Of Saul. The use of nature photography in Thin Red Line, the minimalism of Hell In The Pacific. Style over substance?
