Cinecast Episode 492 – The Pride Cry

With Kurt attacking The Fantasia Film Festival head-on, we must keep this one short before the next screening. That said, it might be argued that at this point, a Christopher Nolan film can be considered an event picture. And Dunkirk is most certainly an event – both the historical context and the theatrical screening. So it would be doing the film a disservice not to give it the attention it deserves with a nearly hour long conversation. So we discuss the technical and emotional aspects of everything Nolan excels at with this picture; which some might consider his masterpiece. You’ll get no arguments from us. So we talk Dunkirk and then move on to a couple of Fantasia titles that Kurt has screened thus far. We apologize for the slight audio falters at the beginning, but it is cleaned up after about ten minutes. We’ll be back next week for another shorter show in which we’ll tackle Atomic Blonde and Lady Macbeth.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Hans Zimmer’s score illusion :


Just seen this today in proper IMAX 70mm, while the IMAX stuff looked great, the other scenes looked really bad and not just in comparison but bad full stop.

Listening to Andrew talk about what gets him emotionally, was pretty much beat for beat what gets me as well.

Sean Kelly

The other officer is played by James D’Arcy, who is indeed in Master and Commander

Richard Vance

I thought the old man at the end was blind hence the fact that he was using his hands more to feel their faces.

Also I am pretty sure that one guy was not making an attempt to swim the channel

Andrew James

Definitely the guy was blind. The film made that pretty obvious (I didn’t mean to imply otherwise). The one kid was mistaken when he said “he wouldn’t even look us in the eye.” I’m not sure why the main kid didn’t correct him – especially after what the old man said to him.
