in Addition to the news we’re leaving Comic-con, the conversation lm revolves around Christopher Nolan, with the occasion of the opening of ‘Dunkerque’. We have spoken of your style, main references or disgust with Netflix, among other topics that have given that talk. Today I bring you other statements where he speaks of the duration of his new film and answers to their detractors.
Thanks to titles of worship as ‘Memento’ or hits like ‘The dark knight’, Nolan has earned the respect and admiration of both the public and the critics and the industry, but with the time increase the anti-Nolan and those who believe that it is overrated. One of the biggest criticisms that we make is that your film is cold, too calculated, without emotion. The filmmaker is aware of the criticism but do not understand:
“I Try not to be obvious. It gives people a bit of freedom to interpret the films in their own way, incorporate what they want. I’ve had people writing that my films lack of excitement, however, I projected those same movies to people who at the end has been crying tears. It is a contradiction impossible to resolve for a filmmaker. In reality, it is one of the really exciting things about film making. By the looks of it, I do films that serve as tests of Rorschach.”
on the other hand, Christopher Nolan has referred to the duration of ‘Dunkirk’, his second movie shorter. With 107 minutes, is only surpassed by his opera prima, ‘Following’premiered in 1998. ‘Interstellar’, his penultimate feature film, was approaching three hours (169 minutes). The filmmaker explains that he wanted to shorten to the maximum the assembly of ‘Dunkerque’ as part of its effort to immerse the viewer in the intense history:
“I Wanted it to be an experience that is as intense as possible and, therefore, more refined, essential and short as possible. You can only endure a degree of suspense and tension that we wanted to film during that time, before exhausting to the public.
I Think that maybe people, when they heard that he was making a film about Dunkirk, especially the british who already know the story, they are thinking of a great epic historical. Imagine a movie of three hours with a lot of dialogue and all that.
What I did was write a script that had 76 pages, really the half-length that my old scripts, because he did not want to tell the story in words: I did not want the histrionics of the people telling the viewers why they should worry about them.
I Wanted to worry about them simply by the physical situation in which they found themselves, and thereby build up a subjective experience of the events of Dunkirk who with luck would be a quality cumulative, an emotional quality during the course of the film that would give its fruits at the end, without being too melodramatic or make sentimental these real facts.
So, the pace relentless and the elementary nature of the film was something that was very determined to be faithful from the beginning, before writing the script.”
What do you think? Do you think that has been a wise decision of Christopher Nolan, or would you expect that ‘Dunkirk’ was a “great epic historical” three hours?
