Classic film buff. I rate my movies based on how much I like them, not how "good" they are from technical standpoint.
Clarence Brown's adaptation of Idiot's Delight is a true hidden gem. It deserves to be on every cinema lover's radar, but for now, I'll keep this one to myself.
There's nothing on record to confirm this but I just know Albert Camus would have loved this movie. Idiot's Delight is absurdism in action. It is a deep contemplation on mankind's search for meaning in perhaps meaningless coincidences - like meeting a stranger you once knew long ago - but more broadly, how can we find value in entertainment when there's a war on? Seriously. I'm asking.
