There is no debating that Casablanca is one of the greatest films of all time. There is a reason it is considered one of the most well-received films. The simplicity of the scenery, the timeless message of love and sacrifice, the casual connective tissue between the characters. The film expresses sentiment in a way that offered reassurance during a tumultuous time in the world theater. Though it wasn’t an instant classic, it’s reputation has increase do over the decades and it remains one of the few untouchable movies in hollywood. It is one of the most quoted movies ever and watching it is like “the start of a beautiful friendship.”
Must watch, obviously.
Classics like this, hold up for a reason…
