Dunkirk would have been even better, though, if any of the characters seemed as fully realized as the aerial and naval warfare. Without that, it works best as pure sensory experience; incredible visuals, intense battles.
IGN gives it a 9.5, only complaint is the non linear narrative making it sometimes confusing, though he says that pays off in the end.
btw, you're all sleeping on Insomina, damn shame Nolan never worked with Robin Williams again.
So in this thread I find out that CompuServe still exists and somehow their forum is credible enough to be counted on Rotten Tomatoes? This feels like bizarro world.

Hoyte Van Hoytema’s beautiful, terrifying lensing – dizzying dogfights, suffocating sinkings and a cinematography-award moment when a Spitfire lands on sun-gilted sand – ensure that what could have been complicated and depressing is rendered with clarity. Thoroughly modern in its approach, yet classical in style, it’s a film that will appeal as much to Batman fans as WW2 scholars, and ultimately, the Academy come gong time.

I would like to personally thank the OP for NOT putting the RT % in the thread title.
Wait... no... please stop
Okay the RT percentage is finally showing up for me. Updated the OP
This is visceral, big-budget filmmaking that can be called Art. It’s also, hands down, the best motion picture of the year so far.
