Thoughts on Dunkirk (the film)Watch
Have seen people complain about the "lack of diversity"
To be expected for a war film I suppose.
And I'd definitely recommend watching it in IMAX
All I can say is I was deeply impressed and moved by it.
love war films and history in general so do want to see it. i do fear that it looks a bit 'glossy' though, i think sometimes lower budget films like kajaki portray the actual struggle more as they seem more gritty. will still see it though
I am often wary of watching films about the world wars, mainly because as a history student, I often get annoyed by the lack of historical accuracy and glamorisation that these films make about the wars. From what I've seen of the trailer it seems to just be an action that just happens to be set during WW2.
Few of the ordinary soldiers who were there ever spoke about their experiences so even historians have little 'real' evidence to go by. As ever, facts are massaged by those in power or the Generals - so the entire story has never been told.
I'm reading his tie-in at the moment...
Just to add: I do understand what you are saying. My father drove a tank in WW2 and was amongst the force that liberated Bergen-Belsen. He rarely would say anything about his experience...
