Nolan throws you face-first into the action in a way that war films of its ilk have never done before, and it's probably the first time my stomach repeatedly clenched without any blood or gore in sight.
Beautiful and intense from start to finish, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is not what you're expecting. It's more lyrical than linear, try to hold on too hard and analyze its terse dialogue and intimated plot, and it will slip right by you.
