This week we look at Christopher Nolan’s epic Dunkirk, released in 2017 and starring Kenneth Brannagh, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy. Nolan, famously against the use of CGI put a lot of effort and budget into using real vessels, aircraft and actors but did he manage to convey the scale and chaos of the 1940 Dunkirk evacuation? It’s fair to say that our conclusions are a mixed bag and we hope that you find them entertaining, possibly informative and thought-provoking.
