The film was beautifully shot and the way it was shot certainly added to the film as opposed to being a gimmick to try and win an oscar. What really stood out to me was the tension throughout the film. War films with repetitive violence bore me after a while whilst 1917 was gripping imo. WW1 films are difficult for a number of reasons and Sam Mendes absolutely nailed it.In what way? My point is it's not an original stylisation of a film so I'm not quite sure why some are losing their minds over it.
Most Oscar bait movies include gimmicks to make themselves seem cutting edge. If the plot and premise grabs me when I see it I'll still think it's a great movie, but things like that aren't ground breaking anymore.
