7 | A technical masterpiece that is nearly devoid of palpable emotion and compelling characters.
Might as well get right to it, then. At the risk of sounding like a contrarian, I did not love this film. Do I love ...
This is the first Christopher Nolan film to be based on actual events. Effectively, even though the screenplay is original, Dunkirk is Nolan's first film inspired by a true story.
Well done lads. Well done.
Alex: All we did is survive.
Blind Man: That's enough.
The Mk 1 Spitfires portrayed had a total fuel capacity of 85 imperial gallons. This was held in two tanks - one above the other. The top tank emptied into the bottom tank till it was used up. The fuel gauge you see the pilots checking was only capable of measuring the bottom tank which held 37 gallons. Therefore it would not be possible for the pilots to determine they had 50 galls of fuel remaining.
There are no opening credits, except for the film's title.
