A must watch for anyone who loves great films!
love this flick! I particularly enjoy Bogart's characterization of a morally ambiguous antihero.
@moviegirl1234..and how many have experienced the "this is where we came in" aspect of movie-going??..you can still get a dose of that in a quentin tarantino flick..f'rinstance - what is the last scene in PULP FICTION??..not the scene AT the end of the movie but the scene that IS the end of the story??..when this question occurred to my friends and me, we had an intense discussion and then had to watch the flick again to determine..any of you solar students of film know the answer to this one??..huh??..do ya??..huh??
Will you forgive me if I write too much on this one? The redemptive nature of this film, the sacrificial act of love, intriguing characters and great acting, first-rate writing, desperate times, dark intrigues..it all combines to make this the classic it is. If you haven't seen it yet, just cause it's old, you should watch it.
The movie experience is really quite different than it was 70 years ago, isn't it. In the 40's, going to the movies was a social event, people dressed up, went with their family and friends. Pictures had time to build an audience. Movies connected people, discussions starting even as the audience spilled out into the lobby. And there was the simple beauty of the big screen.
In our time, a film comes out, and a cam is up in a few days (and if it's not people are shocked and appalled at the delay). The price of a movie ticket has gone up because of this, which makes us harder to afford going to the movies. Our generation wants it fast and cheap or free, and often just wants films that shock and awe. Smaller human stories often get lost in the trample of the latest 3D blockbusters.
If I could, I'd round up the whole solar community and take us to see Casablanca on the big screen. Because “all those people out there in the dark,” as Gloria Swanson famously referred to movie audiences in “Sunset Boulevard,” collectively add something important to the experience of watching a movie. Now, the real question is who's buying the popcorn for us all? ;)
A truly timeless masterpiece. So, round up the usual suspects and check out this one. And if you've seen it before, play it again.
