    Dunkirk (2017)

    ALL HAIL NOLAN

    Seriously, this might be the best movie he has made.

    This movie takes place during the Dunkirk Evacuation in World War II. 400,000 British soldiers are trapped at the coastline of Dunkirk, France.

    Three storylines are told, in a non-linear narrative.

    1) The Mole - Commander Bolton (Kenneth Branagh) plots to get his men out of Dunkirk by using the civilian boat initiative.
    2) The Sea - A civilian (Mark Rylance) takes off without any Naval assistance to rescue men at Dunkirk. He is joined by his son and his son's friend.
    3) The Air - Two British Air Force officers (Tom Hardy and Jack Lowden) fight off enemy fighters as best as they can along the seas that reach Dunkirk.

    Lean, incredibly well-edited, with fantastic acting all around.

    The highlights:
    1) Tom Hardy - He's the man. A fucking HERO in all definitions you can think of. Most of his acting in the film is done with his eyes, and he conveys the situations he's in very well.
    2) Mark Rylance - My jimmies were rustled when he won an Oscar over Tom Hardy for "Bridge of Spies," but man, he was great here. I seriously think he'll get an Oscar nod that comes out of nowhere.
    3) Kenneth Branagh - He's good in everything. The man desperately wants his soldiers off of Dunkirk, not just because Churchill demands 30,000 for the upcoming battles, but because he seriously cares about them.
    4) Hans Zimmer - This score definitely deserves an Oscar. It was intense and matched the movie as well as I can remember a score doing so.
    5) Christopher Nolan - DA GAWD HAS RETURNED!

    This seriously is the best movie, start-to-finish, he has ever made. It's the least Nolan-like film he's made, but it's by far his strongest.

    The editing by Lee Smith should give him an Oscar easily.

    This is one of the few times id expect a movie like this to be over 2 hours. Maybe 140-150 min.

    Feeling like Katrina with no fema
    Like Martin with no Gina
    Like a flight with no visa
    First class with the seat back I still see ya
    In my past, you on the other side of the glass
    Of my memory's museum

    Thank God. If this movie was any longer I think my heart would've exploded.

    10/10 would sweat profusely again
