Darkest Hour 2017

It is a bit of an odd film in that I felt like I spent the entire film watching Oldman play Churchill rather than Churchill being a central player in a very dark time. At no point did I feel any urgency about what was going on. It just felt like.... Oldman putting on his dressup clothes to be Churchill. In that sense it is ironic that they kept referencing Dunkirk because that film conveyed a ton of desperation and urgency. I felt none in this film and often found myself looking at my watch.
