Film Review: Dunkirk (USA/UK, 2017) may be the most spectacular war film ever produced

When the name Christopher Nolan is attached to a film, you know you’re in for a blockbuster by any standards.

Illuminated by it’s sparse screenplay that plays like a watered down Woody Allen impersonation, Paris Can Wait is a romance drama that severely lacks chemistry and minimal story progression. Making for a highly underwhelming debut.... Continue Reading
