Dunkirk discussion (NO SPOILERS)
122 fresh, 6 rotten

quote:

[Nolan has] found a way to harness that technique in service of a kind of heightened reality, one that feels more immersive and immediate than whatever concerns we check at the door when entering the cinema. - Peter Debruge, Variety


quote:

Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is a stone cold masterpiece. It's a stunningly immersive survival film told in 106 thrillingly realized minutes.-Lindsey Bahr, AP



quote:

Christopher Nolan's largely bloodless but profoundly harrowing war epic is the best film he's ever made.- David Ehrlich, indieWire, A


quote:

The story of a miracle should have been thrilling; but given the non-linear approach, "Dunkirk" lacks the kind of center that would prompt the audience to stand up and cheer.- Harvey Karten, Compuserve, C


quote:

This is a film without heroes or a straightforward story. The action is the attraction. If that means some of the film feels a little distant and chilly, it's in the admirable service of avoiding simplistic drama.- Dave Calhoun, Time Out, 4/5



quote:

Dunkirk may be [Nolan's] first historically based fiction, but it's his latest in a long line of survival puzzles, designed to thrill and to provoke the response moviemakers of all kinds have been after for more than a century: whew! Followed by: wow.- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 3/4

re: Dunkirk discussion (NO SPOILERS)
lol we started at same time. I've RA to remove mine. Here's the first review...

quote:

The fact that Nolan packs all this immersive action and national myth into a 106 minute movie should put every assembly-line technician/director conjuring up bloated two and a half hour wallows in digital spider men, apes, robots and raccoons to shame.

Great directors make great movies. And with “Dunkirk,” Christopher Nolan has made his second masterpiece, thrilling history retold, remembered and relished

Reviews are starting to stream in, everyone but the Compuserve guy absolutely loves it so far.

Calling it a masterwork in directing.

Armond White giving it a negative review is a given. I thought the other reviews would be so over the top great it might push the final score over 100%. I could still see this happening.

17/1 so far, 100% among top critics so far, with several throwing out the term "masterpiece".

re: Dunkirk discussion (NO SPOILERS)
So Harvey has rated over 80 movies this year and his lowest grade given is a "C" which is what he gave Dunkirk. He's only given it a few times (8), one being 50 Shades Darker.

That's right. He think this film is on par with 50 Shades...

fricking click bait fricks.

David Ehrlich, who, as far as critics I've read go, is about as big a fart sniffing movie snob as I've seen has called it Nolan's best film to date and an absolute masterpiece. I am intrigued.
