As everyone might expect or think in comparison, Dunkirk is Chris Nolan’s latest exercise in James Cameronism, or as I like think about, Nolan is trying his hand at bigger, and bolder, and wider, cinematic topics. Dunkirk seems to me to be what Titanic was to another generation, a sprawling, gut-wrenching film made on the back of genius, if that’s what Nolan has, and I doubt he does. On another track, perhaps this is his Saving Private Ryan, and he sees himself as more of a Steven Spielberg clone than a duplication of James Cameron. I don’t know for sure who Nolan tries to emulate more.
In any case, three new clips for Dunkirk have released today. Check them out, as always, below.
The official synopsis for Dunkirk follows below:
Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
