It's way too early to say if this has a chance at any significant awards but it's gotta be a lock for those sound mixing/editing Oscars. The sound design in the film was really fantastic.
I've seen people complaining about not being able to tell apart the soldiers but honestly that didn't bug me at all since distinguishing who was who didn't really seem to matter much. it's not a character-driven story. though I actually had a harder time telling which of the pilots was tom hardy than I did telling the solders apart.
I think the structure will play better for me when I watch it again. But it threw me at first and just kind of felt like Nolan throwing in multiple timelines cus it wouldn't be a Nolan film if it didn't have some sort of time fu*kery.
it did make for a few weird cuts. like at the end we see the plane run out of fuel and start to land and in the time Tom Hardy takes to land on the beach the rest of the soldiers sail all the way back to England and get on a train and make it all the way home.
They do give markers at the start as to how long each storyline takes but since all of them overlap and the visual style is very consistent throughout the film, it's really easy to forget that. it took me out of the movie a bit when it would cut from a daytime scene to a nighttime scene and then back to day again. I know it's taking place at different times, but while watching it it feels linear. I was spending most of my attention on absorbing the spectacle of how awesome the movie looked on the huge-ass screen that suddenly having to remind myself to keep track of different timelines felt like a needless distraction from what otherwise was a really immersive film.
