Reviews:
"DUNKIRK is an impressionist masterpiece....This is a war film like few others, one that may employ a large and expensive canvas but that conveys the whole through isolated, brilliantly realized, often private moments more than via sheer spectacle..." - 07/17/2017 Hollywood Reporter


"DUNKIRK does feel like a convincing and thorough evocation of how it might have felt to have been there." - 07/21/2017 Film Comment


"[Nolan] has delivered all the spectacle of a big-screen tentpole, ratcheting up both the tension and heroism....He’s 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." - 07/17/2017 Variety


5 stars out of 5 -- "DUNKIRK may be teeth-clenching stuff, but it’s also the auteur’s most unapologetically emotional and accessible film to date… and it could be the movie to finally get him into the Oscar-winners’ circle." - 07/16/2017 Total Film


5 stars out of 5 -- "Effectively one enormous, stunningly rendered and thunderously intense set-piece stretched to feature-length, DUNKIRK thrusts you into a pressure cooker and slams the lid on." - 07/27/2017 Empire


"It is a great film about one of the most pivotal battles in World War II, in which the ultimate goal of the heroes was not to emerge victorious but to somehow find a way to retreat in order to regroup and fight another day." - 07/18/2017 Chicago Sun-Times


"DUNKIRK is a tour de force of cinematic craft and technique, but one that is unambiguously in the service of a sober, sincere, profoundly moral story that closes the distance between yesterday’s fights and today’s." - 07/20/2017 New York Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "From first frame to last, Christopher Nolan's DUNKIRK is a monumental achievement, a World War II epic of staggering visual spectacle that hits you like a shot in the heart." - 07/18/2017 Rolling Stone


"Very much like the pivotal historical event it celebrates, DUNKIRK confounds expectations. Both intimate and epic, as emotional as it is tension-filled..." - 07/20/2017 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Nolan, who also wrote the film's script, drops you into the middle of the action from frame one and keeps you there." - 07/21/2017 RogerEbert.com


"DUNKIRK's narrative structure is a surprisingly elegant thing. Anything DUNKIRK really needs to say, it says through characters’ reflexes and reactions, zipping bullets and heaving metal." -- Grade: A- - 07/18/2017 A.V. Club


"DUNKIRK breaks free from its precursors by redefining what it feels like to experience combat through film -- the chaos, the confusion, and the courage under fire..." - 12/30/2017 Entertainment Weekly
