Christopher Nolan on working with the 70mm IMAX format

"It allows you to hold shots longer. Capturing detail in a frame is a powerful storytelling tool. When you’re cutting it together, there is the feeling that you want to give the audience time to scan the whole image. You tend to cut a little bit slower, let things play out a little bit longer. Combining that with a very non-verbal script – that is to say, there’s not as much dialogue in this as in my previous films – it’s very much more of an image-based type of storytelling. The large format with minimal dialogue pushes you in an interesting direction editorially. This ['Dunkirk'] was a very different film to edit, and a very enjoyable one too."
