Oldman as Churchill - There is a movie I'd pay not to watch, although I'm sure it will be a big hit with The Football Lads Alliance type crowds. Sometimes I think in post-brexit times every UK movie is just going to be a Dunkirk remake for the next decade.

for those who saw dunkirk: does it forfeit its reason to be watched on a television; that is, should i have caught it in theaters or not at all?

I watched it at home and I think the answer to this is yes

Number None, Tuesday, 13 February 2018 21:27 (eight months ago) Permalink

this has probably been discussed ad infinitum but does anyone else think that the expanded best pic field has evaporated a lot of enthusiasm for the Academy Awards? or maybe it's something else? I recognize my own ambivalence in recent times vs previous decades but i'm sensing it elsewhere too. i don't know if the ratings reflect it, so i might be completely wrong, but i think some of the shine has been taken off.

Remember Hannah Arendt: "When all are guilty, none are."

morning wood truancy (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 13 February 2018 21:30 (eight months ago) Permalink

Yeah, catch it in a theater if you can. It's been re-released to theaters where I live, which surprised me at first, but makes total sense. I hated it - we don't need any more WWII movies or any movies that depict war as anything but totally pointless and endlessly destructive - but it absolutely deserves the Best Cinematography Oscar. it's a beautiful looking movie. the sound is really good, too.

it's better than his usual because it has almost no dialogue and the action scenes are crisp but it's like other Nolan films in that it has no reason to exist

But then, for Alfred, this:

“Many of this year’s best films (Dunkirk, Nocturama, BPM, The Beguiled) were about the power of collectivity. That’s sort of how The Florida Project starts out, but it eventually retrenches into a selfish world where families and finally individuals turn on one another, as if to imply that in the last analysis, there’s no helping the feral poor. And, when all else fails, go to Disney World.” —Michael Sicinski
