Personal Quotes (83)
In this case, the "thing" is a battle that few people in America had ever heard of. How could a movie called "Dunkirk," in this day and age, draw so many people to movie theaters across the country? It's something of a miracle, a giant middle finger to all the claims that there's no place for big risks on the big screen anymore. This is a work of pure cinema, speaking the same language as the cut from flame to desert in "Lawrence of Arabia" or bone to spaceship in "2001." It's also remarkably specific. It captures something that feels uniquely British - the exchanges near the end of the film for example, as the weary soldiers return, bottling up a tremendous reserve of feeling within just a few words. There's a real poetry in their stoicism; for all the bombs and shrieks of gunfire, this is a quiet film. In that combination of scope and subtlety, the enormous canvas and the tiny, telling detail, it feels closer to the best work of David Lean than any recent movie I can recall.
More than that, it feels like Christopher Nolan. This is a filmmaker who has managed, time and again, to make the most seemingly impersonal projects - superhero epics, deep-space mind-benders - feel deeply personal. "Dunkirk" is, to me, his most personal - and most moving - work yet.
