1917 might just have topped Once Upon a Time in Hollywood as the best film of 2019. This could very well be the best war film since Saving Private Ryan. Sam Mendes has crafted his masterpiece. This dethrones American Beauty as his best, aswell as Jarhead as my favorite of his. Such precision went in to crafting this film to look like one take, i kept trying to find the hidden cuts, i am sure i know where they were but yowie wowie they were masked perfectly.  The acting and score are both wonderful, and the pacing is fantastic, especially for a film like this. The imagery is haunting, and at times disturbing as it depicts the horrors of war. This is an intense film, and it is truly deserving of all the awards.
