Why I Like DUNKIRK’s Lack of Character

Ryan Hollinger builds a case for why Christopher Nolan’s 2017 war film, Dunkirk, might actually be better understood as a disaster movie. Drawing attention to the film’s non-linear structure and focus on the environment rather than any single main character, Hollinger illustrates how Nolan’s film upends Hollywood conventions in favor of a more meditative and objective interpretation of a failed historical event.
