Best of the Baldies – Comedy (with Dunkirk re-release)

It’s almost time for our 6th annual Baldies Awards. In order to celebrate, we’re running back the past 5 years of the Baldies to pick an ultimate winner; a Baldy of Baldies, if you will. Each episode features an intro where we debate a previous Baldies category to crown an overall winner and then our full spoiler review of a previous Best Movie Baldy category winner, culminating in our pick for the best winner from the past 5 years.

This week we debate the Best Comedy category and re-run our Dunkirk review.

Dunkirk (2017)

We’ve seen Christopher Nolan’s new film, the war epic Dunkirk, and found it hard to immediately react to. It’s a very visceral, claustrophobic, unflinching, and moving film, epic in scale, but equally effective in zooming in to focus on a small number of actual human beings to focus on and care about. It offers views of the best and worst of humanity, and constantly dares you to both judge and empathize with the men dealing death and narrowly avoiding it. Another fantastic film from Nolan.
