There are not too many dialogues in the film but silence does the talking. See it in IMAX. In reality, a real war would feel similar to this. Gunshots would echo throughout the entire room and sounds of bombs would literally shake my chair.
'It's so pointless. I don't really get it'. The film gets 95 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes who thinks the film will gross more than this. "Dunkirk" isn't a traditional war film told in a linear way.
"I was coming out onto the beach and there were 1,300 extras all dressed in battle gear, spitfires flying overhead and destroyers in the background", he says.
Speaking in no uncertain terms to IndieWire, Nolan explains "Netflix has a freakish aversion to supporting theatrical films". It's chaos. Soon, the movie settles on a single soldier, Tommy (Fionn Whitehead) to become a major focus, but we don't know much about him, and we never find out.
Being a soldier on the beach trying to find a way to safety was hard and sometimes deadly.
On the sea, Nolan shows us one day with a coastal English family, the Dawsons: Dad (Mark Rylance) and his sons Peter (Tom Glynn-Carney) and George (Barry Koeghan).
All three acts eventually intertwine, although the editing can get a little confusing at times. Interestingly, there's not a German character to be seen until the end of the film. Mr Dawson's positive attitude gives hope to the audience. The unbelievable thing is that we move back and forth between them quite fast, so it seems like you're seeing the action play out sequentially, but each storyline actually follows its own distinct timeline - a week with the soldiers on land; a day on the sea, with the people on one of these ships; and an hour in the air with us in the Spitfires.
Plus, you know... two hours of Harry Styles. That's all to say nothing of other films like "Insomnia" and "The Prestige", which both have fans willing to sing their praises. Accordingly, there were no known women on the beaches of Dunkirk and or many people of color. His acting skills are fine here.
Harry Styles: "I think the movie is awesome". Hundreds of thousands of soldiers are waiting to be rescued, dreaming of going home. Hans Zimmer is in a league of his own. Thinking safety was just a ride away sometimes ended with a sunken ship and many men floating in the water. In place of spoken words, the film relies on the actor's facial expressions and body language to really sell the film and their characters journeys.
Nolan's Dark Knight Rises (2012) is all time highest opener ($160.9 million) of his career.
Inspired by a true story, the film is set in late May 1940. Nolan said he wanted to share the experiences of everyday people swept up in history.
