“Dunkirk”: Film Critic Chuck Koplinski, Dinner And A Movie


Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France are surrounded by the German army and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II.  Though there’s no shortage of ambition on display, as Nolan skews the time frame of the film’s three storylines so that one begins a week from the evacuation, the other, one day before and the third an hour before.  While this is meant to underscore a sense of destiny where all of the players are concerned, it comes off as a distraction.  Astounding art direction abounds in a film that comes off as impressive rather than moving. 3 Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated PG-13. 106 minutes. AMC-C, AMC-D, SAV
