Review: 1917 – ★★★★

I think 1917 will most likely be remembered as one of the best films of 2019. Here’s my Letterboxd review:

Mendes’ World War 1 epic is striking. The cinematography is breathtaking. The “one shot” style is a gimmick, but a well executed gimmick that does add something to the atmosphere. That said, I don’t think it was necessary. The relationship between brothers is the unrecognized greatness of the film. Without placing them in a single scene together, Mendes succeeds in showing the real, deep bond felt by brothers. Brilliantly done.
