We like the fact that issue 70 of Little White Lies magazine is dedicated to a film that was shot on 70mm film. The director Christopher Nolan is a stickler for practical, tangible filmmaking, and his latest, Dunkirk, advances that bold personal vision.

It’s the story of the 1940 Dunkirk evacuations, where 400,000 Allied trapped soldiers had to yomp to safety in order to avoid the aggressive advance of Nazi occupiers. Nolan has said that this is not a war movie, but more of a suspense thriller set in the midst of conflict. Once more, the tick of the clock acts as his north star as chaos slowly but surely is turned into order.
