1917 benefits from being released later in the year, so there wasn't time for people to "tear it" down like others did with Dunkirk being released in July.

Also, while many, like myself, loved the structure of Dunkirk with the three different time periods. Others were confused by it and it took them out of the movie (many of them older people, which makes up a bulk of the academy voting body.

It's absolutely a ripoff of Dunkirk.

And Midway is another offender. :facepalm:

In 1940, as British troops retreated through France under fire from an advancing German Army, a massive evacuation was launched to bring the soldiers safely home. Between 26 May and 4 June 1940, a mammoth 338,000 troops were rescued from the beaches of Dunkirk, France, in the remarkable Operation Dynamo.

Operation Dynamo started exactly 80 years ago. Let's watch the film again between today and June 4th to commemorate the battle.

100% agree. It is staggering and mind blowing...When I first put it on, my breath was taken away. So much texture and volume, the subtlety is incredibly graceful.
