Dunkirk

Dunkirk ★★★★½

I like the approach with the 'invisible enemy'. We never get to see them but the occasional shots and bombers passing by make sure we are always aware of their presence. Not too much dialogue, which is perfect cause u know Nolan and exposition yada yada. Tom Hardy just making sure we know he is the coolest man alive. The story is a bit meh, but three storylines coliding like that give it that signature Nolan playfulness with time. The changing aspect ratios threw me off a bit. But the best part of the movie by far is the cinematography. Oh my is it a looker. Color palette is mostly limited to grays, blues and greens, but the war has never looked so vibrant and vivid. Arguably the best looking movie Ive ever seen.
