Reviews


  • Christian Lorentzen (The New Republic)

    Christopher Nolan's latest offering is high on patriotic schmaltz and low on meaningful commentary. Full Review ...

  • Sandra Hall (Sidney Morning Herald)

    "Virtual reality without the headset", [Nolan] calls it, and it's no idle boast. Everything has been meticulously -- and effectively -- designed to dissolve the barrier between you and the screen. Full Review ...

  • Dan Scully (Cinema76)

    The marriage of performance, sound, structure, and downright astonishing visuals makes Dunkirk the ultimate moviegoing experience.

  • Alison Willmore (BuzzFeed News)

  • Bob Mondello (NPR)
