I am a huge Nolan fan so I am a little sad to say that I didn’t get to watch Dunkirk in IMAX or glorious 70mm. In fact I’ve never seen a Nolan film in anything but a standard 35mm movie theatre. The experience, of course, is not as great but at the end of the day I’m still a subject to his unique stories.
Dunkirk, Nolan’s first film based off a historical event, follows the evacuation of 300 000 British, French, Belgian and Dutch soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk during WWII. While it isn’t mind boggling or a sci-fi epic, Dunkirk has Nolan sprinkled all over it, from its non-linear storytelling all the way to the colour palette. So, does that mean it’s any good?
