The Beardict: 8.75 out of 10. Without a doubt, 1917 is one of the most unique and suspenseful films I’ve ever watched. I now fully understand why it was nominated for a whopping 10 Oscars. If it doesn’t win Best Picture, then it’s at least going to win Best Cinematography, Sound Mixing, and Sound Editing. 1917 was able to transport the audience to the harsh conditions of World War I, and it didn’t even need 3D to do it.
