Very great information and selection of pictures that give the reader more than a glimpse of how challenging this film was to make. For both fans of the film or viewers left puzzled by Christopher Nolan's approach, I would recommend reading what went into the making of this film. In a lot of ways, it's just as fascinating as the film itself.
I couldn't wait to receive this book. The "Miracle of Dunkirk" was not new to me. I ready knew of this rescue years and years ago when my father spoke of "Britain stood alone" and this was back in the 50's. When I matured, I started to delve into this subject purchasing books and alternative sides (i.e. DUNKIRK: The Men They Left Behind). Then I saw the movie and I actually left the theater in a daze. The book is so beautifully written with wonderful photography. There are only two drawbacks in my opinion. I was hoping for an actual script such as in THE Da VINCI CODE ILLUSTRATED EDITION where I could read the actual dialogue and notes. The other drawback was of the two page photo of the Spitfire with Tom Hardy wearing that bloody mask! Beautiful Spitfire, crummy mask!

This book gave me another level of respect for Christopher Nolan. It's very interesting to see all the picture of him swimming with the camera crew to get some of the shots. I was also surprised to see that most of this film was done practically. When watching it in theaters (on 70mm IMAX), it was hard for me to tell if the flying shots with all the planes were actually real or CGI. I was happy to see it all was done for real! I truly did enjoy this book. If you loved the movie, you'll love this book! No doubt in my mind! Very well done!

Christopher Nolan is a God among directors. Saw the movie many times in theaters and wanted to know more about the process of making it. Great pictures and plenty of info. Can't wait to have to DVD as well!
