My thoughts:
Man this was slow. But for the first time among all the slow movies I have watched it totally worked! It felt like a slow slow wait until you meet your doom. And they hardly spoke at all it seemed at times, but it worked. It felt like everyone just wanted to live and some were sleepwalking, while others tried their best to get home.

Damn, all white men look the same. All white men with dark hair and that was everyone. So this one guy found another guy, and might have met a bunch of other guys during the movie too. Maybe they all died, maybe they all made it to the end. Dunno, they all looked the same. So that was Beach Men.

Then Kenneth Branagh stood and stoically watched the sea. Good Branagh.

Then there was Cillian Murphy who was scared shitless.

Old guy and Son with boat. Old guy was so  cool and calm.

RAF guys. Thank god, he was blonde. So him I remember.

A few tears wanted to come when the boats came but then the baby cried and ruined that.

The feels man, the feels!

This one would have been amazing at the cinema. Not the same with a screaming baby ;) But still so good and so, so British and calm in the face of utter destruction.

SO yes, this one you should watch.

  5. I was uncertain about whether I want to watch this movie or not. A friend of mine watched it and loved it, even explained the sequencing to me. But I HATE slow movies. I don't even watch dramas. So ... still not sure about this one.
