    Make Way for Tomorrow

    ★★★★½

    “When you're seventeen and the world's beautiful, facing facts is just as slick fun as dancing or going to parties. But when you're seventy you don't care about dancing, you don't think about parties anymore and about the only fun you have left is pretending that there ain't any facts to face.”

    Leo McCarey’s most touching film that stands alone in a sea of movies that aren’t about old age. aging younger actors to put on a most sad show…

    To Be or Not to Be

    ★★★★½

    "It's becoming ridiculous the way you grab attention. Whenever I start to tell a story, you finish it. If I go on a diet, you lose the weight. If I have a cold, you cough. And if we should ever have a baby, I'm not so sure I'd be the mother."

    there’s something about Lubitsch that i’ll never quite understand, he’s personal and has the ability to sway audiences, never crossing the line he always got so close to. It’s…

    Leave Her to Heaven

    ★★★★½

    "I'll never let you go. Never, never, never.”

    the thing with Leave Her to Heaven may be it’s absolutely irresistible technicolor scape that paints the loveliest of pictures in every frame, or it could be the complexity of Ellen Barent, played by the devine Gene Tierney. I know it’s all been said a million times but she is truly haunting in every sense of the word.

    I can’t help but indulge myself in considering her character’s point of view, as the…

    The Lost Weekend

    ★★★★

    The Lost Weekend is a film that’s been lingering on my watchlist for far too long. after deliberating for days on anything that would entertain me from start to finish, I blindly put this film on and decided It had to hold my attention or nothing else could. 

    horrifyingly accurate addiction depictions truly made me once again appreciate Billy Wilder. he’s a noir master but more than that he can direct the eye to seeing new perspectives that question the mind…

    Witness for the Prosecution

    ★★★★½

    "I am constantly surprised that women's hats do not provoke more murders.”

    randomly seeing this on prime was great as it’s been on my watchlist for so long. i’m happy to say it was so much better than I thought it would be. every character seems very written out, like we know so much about them even though we really don’t. there’s plenty of comic relief and insight into everything. without Marlene Dietrich this movie would obviously be a lot…

    Design for Living

    ★★★★

    "It's true we had a gentleman's agreement, but unfortunately, I am no gentleman."

    can I stress enough the joy of watching these three delightful characters prance through paris? no. 

    I’m forever in love with pre-code lubitsch and all that comes with it. it’s really most glamorous, risqué era of film that never fails to amaze me. I like to see these three dressed to the nines, making a "gentlemen’s agreement” over miriam hopkins. I can’t get enough of their chemistry. you could only have this sophisticated comedy with lubitsch directing, he makes it so perfect along with paramount’s reputation for larger than life sets.
