Astonishing as his filmmaking can be at times, it's Mendes' attention to character, more than the technique, that makes "1917" one of 2019's most impressive cinematic achievements.

This is a protean display of virtuoso filmmaking, one that film aesthetes will wallow in but that even ordinary audiences will note and appreciate.

An amazingly audacious film; as exciting as a heist movie, disturbing as a sci-fi nightmare.

It may be a grandiose flourish, but you can't deny it makes for a startlingly literal theater of war.

A visceral World War I movie that is both technically masterful and emotionally devastating. It's easily the best film of Mendes' career.

Although 1917's filmmaking very much brings attention to itself, it's an astonishing piece of filmmaking, portraying war with enormous panache. This is big-screen bravado, and then some.

It's a staggering technical achievement, one that will see Roger Deakins retaining his unofficial Greatest Living Cinematographer crown.
