Was never immersed. The synthetic elements that Zimmer still leans too heavily on for lack of real innovation prevented that. "It doesn't want you to have some upbeat heroic emotional connection", yet it uses Nimrod for that exact purpose... amateurishly. The setting is World War II, not contemporary.

"Zimmer visited the Dunkirk set for inspiration and chose not to view raw footage of the film whilst composing the score." Yeah, that's obnoxious absurdity.
