With Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan proves once again that he’s one of the most ambitious directors working today. Dunkirk is a perfectly crafted, often harrowing, visually stunning powerhouse of a film. It is both emotional and thrilling.

It depicts the events that occurred on the beaches of Northern France, on May 1940. Four hundred thousand British and Allied Troops were stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk waiting for the German forces to descend on them. The waters were too shallow for warships to reach the shores. Instead, an army of civilian ships brought them home. And Dunkirk tells this story in a way that only a director at the top of his game could.

Being a Christopher Nolan movie, it’s not surprising that an unconventional method is employed to tell the story. The movie is divided into three distinct but connected narratives. They take place on land, sea and air. The land section takes place over one week, the sea part covers one day, and the air section happens in the span of one hour. The three parts interweave to gradually reveal the whole picture.

But even in a movie full of bold decisions, the choice to essentially have no main character stands out. The movie’s scope is intentionally narrow, focusing on a small group of men. But through their experience the movie tells a larger story about the war and survival.
