Yes, the movie was a snapshot of what most probably was a fairly typical incident during the entire evacuation.
So, for that, I wish those who did not understand history would learn a bit more and apply it to a movie, before getting on a soapbox for their particular rant or cause.
BUT…having stated as such and as much, I can understand where the cries from the wilderness come from.
I blubbered and downright cried for much of the movie…and I'll Beat the Crap out of anyone who makes fun of me for doing so if they confront me about it face to face!
We all know death, we all know OF death…if you watched Dunkirk…you honestly Witnessed DEATH!
Not a feel good movie in the regular sense, but an absolutely Terrific movie all the same!

We too found it a terrific movie too.
Impressionistic rather than historically accurate.

Onion ninja were loose in the theater. It took a few hours to get it all back together

"Onion ninja …?" Is that a figurative reference of some kind? Onions make you cry…

How bloody, gory, graphic is the movie compared to, say, Private Ryan as the baseline for gore? I couldn't make it through PR, if you catch my drift. I had to wait for the edited version on TV to see it.

Well it surely was not bloody or gory and the violence was not graphic either.
