There is no Imax cinema in Perth so I'm guessing it was that fact that rendered my enjoyment of the movie as a spectacle completely null and void. I was left with an inferior small screen experience which simply served to focus my attention on a myriad of small details which completely detracted from what had promised to be a superlative example of movie as experience escapism.
I am left with jarring memories, snapshots from the film really which will infuriate me until the day I die. The soundtrack only served to further inflame my emotions and a carefully constructed (and hand bound) set of historical notes pertaining to specifications of machines, particular landmarks, the brand of woollen blanket in popular supply at the time along with eye witness accounts of the grooming habits of frontline soldiers in the early stages of WWII were rendered absolutely unreadable and therefore useless, by my tears of impotent rage.
I've rarely been so insulted by a movie.
