1917 film review: Sam Mendes’ visceral World War I drama is his best movie to date

  • Starring George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman, director Sam Mendes’ 1917 is both technically stunning and emotionally devastating
  • It’s every bit as powerful as Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan and Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line, two World War II classics
