(Inception for someone with vertigo? HAHA NO.)

I don't even have vertigo and Inception gave me a migraine. Periodically I think I should rewatch it so as to give it a fair shake—I thought it was brilliantly put together and I hated every minute of the experience—and then I feel faintly but persistently aversive and then I just don't.

Dunkirk is filmed on a big enough scale that I think it will almost certainly lose something in the translation to home media unless you have one of those Bradburyesque wall-TVs (in which case you'll probably have vertigo no matter what), but I don't think it should totally fall apart as a movie. If you decide to give it a try, I would love to know what you think.

...WHUT. Who is saying this. Film critics?

I kid you not!

more of an emphasis on the little ships and 'ordinary' people coming to the rescue. It would be nice to see a movie that focused solely on that side but I doubt Hollywood would make it.

That aspect is the focus of "The Sea," although since it's just the one little ship there's no sense of the scale of the effort until the third act, when there are others. I find it hard to believe there isn't a movie based solely around the little ships, just because it's such a core part of the British World War II narrative, but the world is full of weird gaps.

[edit] The Connie Willis is Blackout and All Clear (2010)? (I haven't read either.)
