Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, starring Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Fionn Whitehead, Aneurin Barnard and Harry Styles is getting rave reviews everywhere. Dunkirk is a different kind of war movie, says Rotten Tomatoes film critic Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal.
“Christopher Nolan has created something new in the annals of war films – an intimate epic”
Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk with Harry Styles, Mark Rylance, and Tom Hardy doesn’t air in theaters until tomorrow. Still, professional critics who have seen it are very impressed with Christopher Nolan’s work on Dunkirk. Rotten Tomatoes critic Marc Savlov of the Austin Chronicle praises the artistic editing and the music score for Dunkirk, calling it a “bona fide classic.”
“I’d go so far to say that Dunkirk could easily serve as its own master class in the art of film editing. Add to that an absolutely terrifyingly discordant score from Hans Zimmer and the result is, well, a bona fide classic. Well done, sir, well done.”
