cashew: dude with sunglasses looking confused (Misc // Haa?)
Critics hail Dunkirk as the best war movie ever, but I'm not sure if I can trust this.

See, the thing is, I have a personal fondness for Dunkirk (the historical event), because it was one of the first detailed events of WWII in the European front that I learned about. The miraculous evacuation was something no one thought was possible and had the English not pulled off the retreat, WWII just may go in a completely different direction. Therefore, I would like the even recorded with the gravitas and respect that it deserves.

Dramatizing it for box office tickets, on the other hand, does not convince me that it will be respectful enough of the near miracle pulled off by sheer human determination and ridiculous luck. So...yeah... I'm feeling a bit ambivalent about this movie.
