Casablanca ★★★★½

I am no longer hot trash as I have FINALLY fixed this glaring, cinematic blindspot!

Beautiful, immaculate filmmaking underscored by a poignantly melancholic romance for the ages. It took a bit for me to fully become invested in the story and the central relationship, but once we started delving deeper into Rick and Ilsa’s history, I was entirely sold on the emotions onscreen (particularly thanks to Bogart’s and Bergman’s outstanding chemistry).

Not a new favorite persay, but certainly deserving of the endless acclaim it’s received over the years.
