1917 Reviewed: An Overdue World War One Masterpiece

Large scale intimacy may seem like a contradiction, but Sam Mendes achieves that rare blend in 1917. The director saturates his film's audience in the horrors of World War One using a rare single-shot narrative. Because of this choice, 1917 is more of  a psychological thriller than a traditional war movie. It is also the best epic to emerge from a year of  instant classic tales like The Irishman and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
