For the first segment of this final live episode of Film Club, A.V. Club film editor A.A. Dowd and staff critic Ignatiy Vishnevetsky delve into one of the summer’s most anticipated and acclaimed films: the World War II thriller Dunkirk, which finds blockbuster writer-director Christopher Nolan applying his cool touch and elaborate storytelling sensibilities to a pivotal event in the early part of the war to create something that is equal parts old-fashioned and convention-defying.

Watch the final live episode of Film Club below and stay tuned for a new format next month.
