Dunkirk: A Review

Dunkirk is an excellent movie. Reports of this being an unusual war movie are true. While it is recognizably a Christopher Nolan movie, with various time lines and perspectives being shown, it is also unlike his other films. It is unique.  

I was impressed by the film. It shows the terror that was that evacuation (and the collapse of the Allied armies in France and Belgium) and the heroism of those who resisted and went into hell's way to save others. I especially like the performance of Mark Rylance as a civilian helping to rescue of soldiers trapped on the beach. I recommend it.  

Given the scope and cinematography, this is a film you should definitely see in the theater. I found it suspenseful and moving.
