I find Nolan to be inconsistent. I liked his first dark knight. I thought interstellar was one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
I thought his was a visceral and tightly constructed war movie. Yes, the words were hard to understand. In combat, they probably would be.
I found this exciting in the way a big screen movie experience is at its best. Nothing complex, music and sound and life and death. This is one I would probably not care for on the home screen. But it drew me quite intensely in on the xd size screen. I don't know much about World War II history so i personally did not know what would happen. So yeah, for me his Waterloo was interstellar, This was a redemption.
Liked it but found it too small in scale to recreate the undertaking and what was accomplished.
Very much a failure to see the forest for the trees. One failed to gain a full perspective of the magnitude of the conflict.
I found the movie to be a bit claustrophobic, with some elements reminiscent of Das Boot.
Light on dialogue....
