Crooked Table Podcast: Episode 58 — ‘Dunkirk’: In Nolan We Trust?

In Episode 58 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Robert Yaniz Jr. finally catches up with the critically acclaimed new film from writer/director Christopher Nolan, Dunkirk. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, James D’Arcy, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles (yes, that Harry Styles) and Mark Rylance. With rich subject matter and his usual flair behind the camera, Nolan could be poised to add another classic to his already impressive resume following hits like Memento, Batman BeginsThe Prestige, The Dark Knight and Inception. But does Dunkirk live up to its pedigree or fail to deliver the experience longtime Nolan fans are expecting?

In addition, be sure to check out the brand-new episode of the Cinemaholics podcast to hear Rob’s thoughts on the new David Leitch film Atomic Blonde — starring Charlize Theron and James McAvoy — and Marvel’s The Defenders, the long-awaited Netflix miniseries uniting Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist for the first time.
