NFT: Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' receiving praise

Vin R : 7/10/2017 2:05 pm
So whatís the word? Well, unsurprisingly, those who saw the film at the press day have high praise for Nolanís craft. The guy is a master filmmaker, and with Dunkirk it sounds like heís put together a non-stop, edge-of-your-seat thriller. The IMAX photography is also getting strong notices, as folks point out that experiencing this movie in full IMAX is the best way to do it.

100% seeing in imax

curious how much of it was shot in iMax. IIRC Interstellar was about 40-50% imax (the scenes in space and the other action sequences).

That's where you're wrong! It's a brisk 1 hour and 47 minutes.

A quote from Nolan on why.

I wanted it to be as intense an experience as possible, and therefore as lean and stripped down and short an experience as possible. You can only sustain the degree of suspense and tension of the war from the film for so long before you exhaust the audience. People who were hearing that I was doing a film about Dunkirk, particularly British people who know the story already, were thinking big historical epic that was a three-hour film with a lot of talk and all that. What I did was I wrote a script for the film that was only 76 pages ó really half the length of a screenplay. Because I didnít want to tell a story in words. I didnít want the theatrics of people telling the audience why you should care about them, I wanted them to care just because of the physical situation that they were under.

Was that before or after this stupid and unnecessary exchange?

Bane: You came back to die with your city.

Batman: No. I came back to stop you.
