Directed by Christopher Nolan. With Fionn Whitehead, Barry Keoghan, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy. Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire, and France are surrounded by the German Army, and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II.
Unintentionally the second story I’ve seen this week that used similar story devices of showing the same event from multiple perspectives, of which I think Dunkirk did better than “flags of our fathers” and “Letters from Iwo Jima”. Tom Hardy specifically really did a great job with Christopher Nolen’s direction and filled out a role in which he doesn’t show his full face until the last 2 minutes of the flick.
I highly recommend this, it was much better than I was expecting.
Dunkirk originally appeared on Adam Selvidge’s Website on June 28, 2019.
