I Saw Dunkirk!

August 4, 2017

I didn't fall head-over-heals in love with Dunkirk like I wanted to, BUT there were a few things I couldn't help but get excited about: 

 

- Hoyte van Hoytema (Her, Interstellar) is clearly Nolan's new cinematographer, and that's every reason to get pumped about anything they do in the future. Wally Phister (The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception) was incredible, but van Hoytema brings an epic (I hate that word, but fuck it, it's right) element to every shot he frames. For the skies Nolan is reaching for now, this is the guy to flesh it out. 

 

- This is terrible to admit, but I didn't know that was Mark Rylance till his name showed up in the credits (just like I did with Gary Oldman when I first saw Batman Begins). I spent the whole movie watching his character going, "who IS this guy?!". Aaaaaand it was the guy who stole the Oscar from Stallone. And now I feel like an uneducated asshole. Gonna have to watch Bridge of Spies and everything else he's ever done now.

 

- The Christopher Nolan/Hans Zimmer director/composer marriage might be the best ever... the only duo I can think of that is comparable is Steven Spielberg and John Williams. If anyone has another to bring to the table, please lay it on me. I'd love to go down a new rabbit hole. 

 

- Tom Hardy wears like 60% of his Bane costume.

 

Don't get me wrong, I thought Dunkirk was great... but Christopher Nolan has established a bar so high that it's hard to see anything he does through the Dark Knight blinders every go-round. He's still one of the best filmmakers we'll ever see. Still inspired. See it regardless of this post.
