EDITORS’ NOTES

Achingly suspenseful from its opening track, "The Mole," Hans Zimmer's dark, disturbing, and mostly electronic score often suggests an intensification of his earlier non-melodic music for director Christopher Nolan. Indeed, Nolan's own wristwatch provides the ominous intermittent pulse indicating this evacuation tale's mortal stakes. Shepard tones and pounding percussion create panic within stasis during the nightmarish "Oil," and Edward Elgar's "Nimrod" variation is deconstructed during Dunkirk's monumental finale.

A Great Soundtrack Is Not Always Thematic...

...Its how well it envokes the atmosphere of the movie setting, and helps tell the story. Hans Zimmer has found many new and interesting ways to produce an aural backdrop that meshes so well with Christopher Nolan's vision. This soundtrack is no different.

Great music.

This soundtrack is getting a lot of crap from people but i really like it, it's atmospheric and intense when it needs to be. Nolan and Zimmer team up is always a win.
