This list, then, is according to those opinions, with no claim to empirical scale. 1917 – This slightly dreamlike World War I drama is crafted so that it appears to take place in a handful of long tracking shots that swirl around the characters. We feel that we are there on the ground with a couple of young, determined English soldiers as they try to prevent an ambush, at the same time that we sometimes think we may be hallucinating. It’s […]Read On »
