‘1917’ receives glowing reviews

The Sam Mendes film 1917 has been earning high praise for its brutal realism and technical prowess.

The first screening of director Sam Mendes’ new war epic, 1917, took place over the weekend in New York where some lucky audiences got to see the film. Starring Dean-Charles Chapman, George Mackay, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Scott, the film follows two young British soldiers who are tasked with delivering a message deep into enemy territory to save the lives of over 1,000 soldiers.

The film was received as having some of cinematographer Roger Deakin’s best work and is being called the best war movie since Saving Private Ryan. You can check out some of the film’s early reviews below.

The early buzz for 1917 to compete at the Oscars will make it an interesting awards season. While we have not yet received the official nominations for any categories, films like Todd Phillips’ Joker, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Quentin Taratino’s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood are all up for consideration as Best Picture contenders.

1917 will release in theatres worldwide on Decemeber 25, 2019.
