Skipping Dunkirk

The real, historical Dunkirk was an epic. The movie version is hardly epic.

Moreover, it’s presented completely without context. No Churchill. Not even a swastika. Just another war-is-hell flicker—with boats, and water and drowning.

Bosh.

  1. Well, damn. I was kinda wanting to see that one. Now, I dunno.

    Sounds like they made it neutral enough so anyone could read into it what they wanted to. A shame as it is one of the great stories of history. I think I’d still go see it and ignore the bad possibilities.

  3. I prob will pony up my quarter for me and my wife. It is still 25 cents, right?
