So, true to my word I went to see 1917 so i can pass judgement on it.
fucking great film actually, i can only fault it for one slow scene that felt somewhat forced in the middle of an otherwise consistently tense runtime. even the two chavs in the back corner of the cinema shut their gobs after five minutes and i'm convinced i heard one of them sniffling in the emotional bits.
as for our out of place sikh, it really wasn't distracting from the film. he is dressed in regular tommy attire, but he's clearly shown as a foreigner with basic english and one of the other lads even gives him a jibe about barely knowing the language. i've not bothered googling it to see how many sikhs there actually were in british regiments as opposed to colonials, but in this film it didn't feel out of place. it could have been done badly, but it wasn't.
