Dunkirk as a Silent Film

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk was one of the most intense movies of the year. Its stripped down nature made it feel immersive and very suspenseful to watch as it allowed us to better experience what was happening to these characters. But what if the movie was stripped down even further? Echoing Nolan’s silent film inspirations, YouTube channel Like Stories of Old, re-edited a few clips from Dunkirk to make it into a short 8-minute black and white silent film. Unsurprisingly, it works well with excellent music and a slightly faster speed that both capture the essence of most silent films. It’s also a decent summary of the movie but you owe it to yourselves to see the original as it is one of the best movies of the year and it’s on blu-ray so you have no excuse.
