A race against time - Review for 1917

          Skyfall director Sam Mendes joins forces with legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins to bring one of the most revolutionary films in years to the big screen. While the premise of a war movie based around two soldiers delivering a message does not sound like a hit, this movie brings a lot more to the table. Mendes decided that the movie would benefit if the viewer could go with the two soldiers, Lance Corporals Schofield and Blake in real time to deliver their message. So the idea for a movie that looks like one long take was born. A period accurate World War I movie filmed to look like one continuous shot, once I heard this I was immediately on board.
