And the Oscar for best costume design goes to Dunkirk…Preditction Bold Statement.
You can skip my banter and read the Vulture’s Oscar Nomination predictions here: “…of those Oscar categories I’ve mentioned, I think Dunkirk is well-positioned to score at least ten nominations” However, the Saving Private Ryan feel of best costume design is looking like the The Darkest Hour or Gaurdians of the Galaxy. I will try to make a case for Dunkirk getting the Oscar.
First the reason why I believe the movie will be thrown in for the oscars early is because how could it not have better costumes than Harry Potter’s Magical Beasts and Where to Find Them. The Character’s outfits were the most important troupe of the movie and even dictated how much power one had over another. Without a lot of differences in setting, such as the beach, air, and boat, the costumes worn in the movie were perfect.
Ok first, was that I have to acknowledge that I like military style, especially the kind from the Renaissance Era. You can read more about it in the book Military Style Invades Fashion with men wearing head scarves and hackers who look like they are from the Matrix. Tom hardy’s Character used his costume to convey extreme emotion for a man who plays the villain well. His aviator jacket, with a turtleneck and aviator shades with sunglasses flip was amazing.
His braided oxygen mask was amazing!!His goggles always let us in suspense in how distressing his eyes were and when he put on his oxygen mask it was very villanous like his Bane Character.
The costumes worn by the land soldier was also great and very symbolic because the opening scene we see a soldier taking a uniform from another soldier who was being buried. There was a funny scene when Harry Styles gets in one of the lines and then the person in front says Infirmery Only!! Know one knew rank because it was chaosAfter two hours of aerial footage, and exploding dark boats with the same looking people, it made you feel distorted like you were watching an alien spaceship. You lost all hope for the character and personal touch because he was a blink in a sea of the exact same people. That was expected.
The yacht men’s costume was also well played because it made the clash of any new characters extremely discomforting because the costumes were motifs for forces about to collide, like you wondered if they were going to turn around because of how hostile the clash of citizen and army soldier was.
Next was the internal politics I am not going to reference this to the world today because there is absolutely no comparing the scenario to anything that would be plausible. I am just saying there was a prominent theme of internal conflict between the allies and you begin to think would prisoners of war really turn on each other? Well, that’s like saying would prisoners begin hurting each other like pawns in a chess game? So, that’s where I draw the line because judging internal conflict is like judging how one family decides to live.
Next, I left the theater when the I felt like screaming for something. In the lobby I heard what sounded like a chainsaw, true grit, and wanted to know what movie, then the next steps was to just get in the last 15 minutes. Something finally fucking happened!! Like give me a fucking movie of suspense and I will walk out before the monster shows on the screen I don’t give a Fuck. I seriously thought I was watching March of The Penguins meets Fashion Week in Paris.
Give me something, give me the fucking transcripts of the radio calls. Give me the number of casulaties per day. Give me something! All I got was a buch of 3 second clips and some shaky cameras with a bunch of people standing still. No communication was portrayed. They were absolutely the worst story tellers, and I am glad it wasn’t a space opera with an even slower love narrative. Does anyone know how to ask a french for a door for a raft?!
I hope I got the story right, but I definitely see a gripe at an oscar in score ( I wore Mack’s Pillow Soft Earplugs.) Then I would have took the sand bags from the French, and set up a cliff as big as Normany and set up every single infantry man to shoot create a wall of communication to track enemy planes instead of lying in the sand like a 2 year old kid. They weren’t defenseless they were victims of war.
