A new video essay from Vimeo user Titouan Ropert puts footage from Nolan’s movie and the real battle side by side to prove just how amazing “Dunkirk” recreates history.
“Dunkirk” is currently in the Oscar race, with Nolan widely expected to earn his first Oscar nomination for Best Director. The film was recently named Rotten Tomatoes’s third best reviewed film of 2017 and landed on the National Board of Review’s list of the year’s top films.
