Nolan's Dunkirk Silent

"Spitfires George, greatest plane ever built." Christopher Nolan's intense war thriller about the miraculous Dunkirk evacuation at the beginning of WWII has been earning accolades and recognition on many Top 10 lists as the year comes to an end. Dunkirk really is an outstanding movie, that is so exceptional thanks to Nolan's expertise in crafting impeccable visuals to help viewers feel fully immersed in the story. YouTube channel "Like Stories of Old" has created a new version of Dunkirk that plays as an 8-minute black & white silent film. It's actually kind of perfect, they get everything right, even the music and the dialogue cards. Aside from being a cool experiment in editing, it shows just how impressive Dunkirk is as visual storytelling.

Here's the B&W silent film version of Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, from YouTube (found via SlashFilm):

Dunkirk is both written and directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the movies Following, Memento, Insomnia, The Prestige, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy and Interstellar previously.
