The ending

Obviously spoilers but just for etiquette's sake: noticed that this is the first of Nolan's movies where the final shot has someone in full frame, facing us directly. All of his previous endings have created a sense of distance with either someone departing the frame (Interstellar, BB, TDK, TDKR), j...

Re: Dunkirk Industry/Celebrity Buzz

No, slavery was not always perceived as "wrong". If you Virgo were raised in the 1500s, I bet you'd agree with slavery, because that was just what people learned to think. Slaves were thought of like farm animals today, as inferior to humans and tools for production. Slavery was the norm for centur...

Re: [SPOILERS] Thread

Second viewing in 70 mm IMAX was unreal. Love how all the timelines connected and the perspective of characters in certain moments differed from another person (Collins "waving" to Farrier). The civilian boats being cheered on by the soldiers on the destroyer was such a triumphant moment and well e...

Re: Dunkirk's Cinematography

For those who have seen it both on digital and film, how does it compare in terms of color and contrast? Was it identical to the trailers? P.S. Am I the only one who though the wide aerial shot after the Heinkel dropped the bombs on the minesweeper to be quite video game-ish? It also reminded me of...

Re: Dunkirk's Cinematography

I ain't reading all of the pages to see if anybody pointed it out (someone probably did), but the shot of the trio sleeping on the shore of the beach is one of my favorites tbh That's probably my favorite too. The whole sequence feels like purgatory, with what the other soldiers trying to launch ro...

Re: Fionn Whitehead joins the cast of 'Dunkirk'

What do you mean "all-time classic Cannes and Honest Trailers moments"? And Tommy has a "resting bitch face"? Whaaat?? :shock: Was responding to MyCocaine, whose username presumably refers to this Honest Trailer take on TDKR where they credit Michael Caine as "My Cocaine." https://www.youtube.com/w...

Re: Fionn Whitehead joins the cast of 'Dunkirk'

I feel Tommy's 'Fuck' line is slightly drowned out or cut in half. just want to say that I love your avatar AND username so much. all-time classic Cannes and Honest Trailers moments Just to steer this slightly back on track, I thought he was tremendous. He literally has about three or four brief li...

Re: Predict the MVP of the cast

I wasn't singling you out, but there are several people who think specifically the last shot is simply genius, and the most bedazzling and mesmerizing last shot in any Nolan movie. I haven't encountered these people—I don't consider it genius or bedazzling, just up there with his most interesting e...
