“Dunkirk”: Film review

Not the 1958 film of the same name about the same thing, or the 2014 dramatized documentary narrated by Timothy Dalton, 2017’s “Dunkirk” relies on tension more than the graphic gore and splatter realism of harrowing WWII war films like “Saving Private Ryan.” Dramatically retelling the story of the mass evacuation of the British troops surrounded on the French coast and somehow not annihilated by the Nazis (another of their odd strategic decisions that proved ultimately fatal to them and favorable to the Allies), “Dunkirk” is well-paced and sufficiently captivating to retain interest until the end.
