A PERSPECTIVE ON ’DUNKIRK’
There is considerable hubbub over “Dunkirk,” an epic World War II movie which made $105.9 million during its debut in theaters here and abroad over the weekend. Movie critic Christian Toto, however, says there are five other World War II movies to see before the latest entry in the genre.
“‘Dunkirk’ is but one chapter from World War II, an epic fight richly realized on movie screens for generations. Christopher Nolan’s film goes to great lengths to reflect war in all its ugliness. At times, it succeeds. It still can’t fill in all the gaps,” Mr. Toto writes in PJ Media. “The following five films help do just that. Consider rewatching them before ponying up to see Nolan’s latest epic.”
The five films are “Saving Private Ryan,” “Patton,” “Schindler’s List,” “Letters from Iwo Jima” and “Twelve O’Clock High.”
