Quentin Tarantino has said that the soundtrack for movie Dunkirk its that powerful that “could define the decade”.
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director spoke about about the original score’s 2018 Oscars snub despite the Academy rewarding the film in another area (Academy Award for Best Film Editing).
“It’s a score for one movie in particular that you could define the decade by,” Tarantino said on The Ringer’s ‘Rewatchables’ podcast, NME reports.
The acclaimed filmmaker expanded on Christopher Nolan’s World War II survival thriller, saying that it’s his second favourite movie of the 2010s.
“I had an interesting experience with it the first couple of times,” Tarantino said of the film. “The first time I saw it, I don’t know what I was thinking the first time. I just dealt with the spectacle of it all. I couldn’t deal with anything else but the spectacle of it all.
“I liked the movie, but the spectacle almost numbed me to the experience. I don’t think I felt anything emotional. I was awed by it. But I didn’t know what I was awed by…it wasn’t until the third time that I could see past the spectacle and into the people the story is about. I finally could see through the trees a little bit.”
