Viktor Prentovski’s review published on Letterboxd:
La La Land has prompted me to watch some really great movies. I have already seen Rebel Without a Cause in the past and loved it, so my next movie was Singin' in the Rain, which I watched earlier today.
The next logical step was going to Casablanca for a sip of one of the finest movies ever. I get why this is a classic. It has phenomenal writing, but the actors make it what it is. This is my first Bogart, and I was floored by his performance. I expected great things from this, but it managed to surpass my expectations. Also, the lovely Ingrid Bergman, who I adore from Hitchcock's Notorious delivers as well.
The supporting cast is great as well, whether it's Paul Henreid's Victor Laszlo, Claude Rains' Captain Louis Renault or Dooley Wilson's Sam, they all play a big part in this Moroccan adventure.
So many iconic scenes, so many classic quotes, Casablanca lives on 75 years after. Here's looking at you, kid!
