Dunkirk is not a bad movie. I must begin with this lest I be ostracized online by vehement fans of Christopher Nolan who religiously spent their time ranking his movies and then arguing about said rankings. I myself am one of them and yet I made the mistake of going to see Nolan’s new directorial gift to men expecting to see a western war movie – as the trailer made it seem. I was disappointed. I should have known better.
