“1917” is a World War I story that is told in a unique way. Two British infantry men are sent into No Man’s Land to deliver a message to the commander of troops that are about to attack the Germans that it is an ambush. The body of the film is about these soldiers’ journey and is continuous. The story is compelling and the young actors do a good job. But the thing that makes this film different is the way it is told. it is a continuous journey, told in almost real time. “1917” has been winning most of the big awards, as has its director Sam Mendes. While I think the film is one of the best of 2019, I do not know if it is THE best. Still, see this movie and if you can, see it on the big screen because it is filmed beautifully.
- One of the best of 2019.
