I see that a lot is made of the technique they use to film this movie in one continuous shot, and it is very interesting, but I must confess I am not a student of film, merely a viewer. So you will find no critiques of the director or editor or that sort of technical detail. I like what I like.
Anyway, I enjoyed this movie more than I expected I would. I am not big on war movies. The scenery seemed great to me, and though there were visually stunning scenes, they didn’t try to pile on explosion after explosion to cater to that crowd. The two leads were at the same time heroes and regular guys. I could almost picture myself in their position. Moments of extreme courage and bravery under fire were balanced by totally justified panic and fear. There were also quieter moments here and there, breaks from the sometimes hard to bear tension. Finally, there was a plot twist that seems normal looking back at it, but it shocked me at the time. I will leave it at that and not risk giving anything away.
So while I probably won’t watch it again anytime soon, I do recommend it, even to viewers like me, who aren’t big on war movies. As a side note, one viewer warned others NOT to compare this movie to Saving Private Ryan. I guess he thought it doesn’t compare with it. Maybe I should give that movie a second look.
Finally yesterday I was able to experience 1917 and I ended up doing it at IMAX, something I didn’t plan on, but after seeing it there, I can say this film deserves to be seen and heard in an IMAX room to remember why movies still need to be lived on a big screen.
The visual odyssey of Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins is an incredible journey. Yes, the story is very thin but that’s something that made 1917 a somewhat different film
It’s not a war epic, nor does it try to be one. It’s kind of a lone wolf war story, though at the beginning it wasn’t like that, and that’s good because despite everything that happens, the film doesn’t lose that sense of camaraderie at the task that remains after the loss.
1917 is a story of survival and that although it could not be considered completely original, that’s totally the least of its problems because after all the experience is just spectacular.
I admit the film has certain rhythm dropouts that I didn’t like, especially the scene where Schofield loses consciousness, but at that point we are given the extraordinary night sequence, so my discomfort ended up disappearing.
1917 is not a perfect film, but it’s a reminder of how wonderful is to enjoy a film as they should be, even if it’s a film that deals with the horrors of war.
This is the kind of film that should be lived and experienced that way, otherwise it loses its resonance, so if you have the chance to see 1917 at a big screen do it.
Here goes the Oscar for best cinematography
Guaranteed Oscar. A technical and visual triumph. Bravo Roger Deakins!
You can call this the 3,001st review
I read the previous review, and saw that it was number 3,000, making mine the 3,001st. All that I can say is that Sam Mendes’s “1917” is a mind-blowing movie. Filmed as a single shot, it shows the horrors that the British troops witnessed during World War I. The combination of acting, cinematography and musical score create something unlike anything that you’ve ever seen (not least because of the sheer intensity of the battle scenes). We in the 21st century can never truly imagine the misery of fighting in WWI, but this movie at least gives us a feeling of it.
Anyway, fine movie. Definitely deserved its Oscar wins.
