OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Dunkirk

Almost completely devoid of backstory Dunkirk is a big ask in terms of connecting to character and coupled with the endless dogfights, while spectacular to watch it all becomes a bit tiresome. Unfortunately I found myself distracted by technical inconsistencies like mismatched weather and the shoehorning of clunky emotional strokes. 2.5 stars
