my mom works with young kids and apparently even though its cringy and outdated as fuck they all enjoy that live-action cat in the hat movie and still watch it all the time, and its sometimes really concerning because occationally my mom just comes out with these quotes, which are essentially just entire skits from that movie that she knows word-for-word and she just recites them at random with a completely serious deadpan face. i hope shes okay?
dunkirk is the kind of film you sit on after you see it. at first you’re like, yeah that was a good film. it was a different kind of war movie. then you leave the theater and you start thinking about it, all your favorite moments, the ones that made you bite your nails off. you think about the message and what christopher nolan is really trying to get across with the way he directed it. and then you realize that it’s actually sort of spectacular. because you were in the film. you weren’t just hearing a bunch of dialogue, knowing what someone was going to do next. you were basically living it. between the music and the acting, you were feeling what they were feeling. long story short, if you were unsure of dunkirk at first: sit on it. i guarantee you’ll see the beauty in it.
