“It’s not like any war movie you’ve ever seen before.” The first reviews of the movie “1917” directed by Sam Mendes
The peculiarity of Sam Mendes’ film is its technical form. The film “1917” is shot in one frame. Such an artistic trick was performed by Emmanuel Lyubecki in the film “Birdman”.
“1917” IS OUTSTANDING. An epic picture of World War I, the emotional depth of which is unprecedented for the genre. Amazing scene behind the stunning scene. George McKay is wonderful. You are so immersed that you forget that the picture is shot in one shot. A daring movie that ends 2019 on a high note.
“1917” is the best movie since Saving Private Ryan. Cameraman’s work of the year. The cameraman’s work of the decade. Thomas Newman has given out an orchestral masterpiece. This is a gift from Sam Mendes to the cinema… and his family.
“1917 is a real technical breakthrough in 2019. We are following these people in the footsteps. It’s not like any war movie you’ve seen before. The epic scale and tension that Sam Mendes directed, the thrilling music from Thomas Newman and the cameraman work of Roger Dickins
“1917” is an amazing movie. A brave story that is masterfully told. Exciting and emotional. I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen from the first to the last second. This is the very film you MUST watch on the big screen. Wow.
I feel like I’m being beaten in the chest for two hours. It’s done at extreme levels, the actors’ game is strong, and Méndez’ directing is probably the best I’ve seen. Thomas Newman’s music + Roger Dickins’ cameraman work = an experience you won’t forget.
The main roles in the film were performed by: George McKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Richard Madden. The cameraman was Roger Dickins.
