CASABLANCA

One of the true classics that feels like a truly timeless and completely new work of art. Hollywood workaholic Michael Curtiz directs what could have been a paint-by-numbers Hollwood romance into an emotionally draining, incredibly entertaining, perfectly executed tale of love, greed, loss, murder, betrayal and loyalty. It's influence can't be overstated, it's flawless script will never be praised enough. And there's Bogey and Ingrid Bergman, given the defining performance of their careers. Curtiz's too-good-to-believe cast also includes Claude Rains, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet. There are few films that are unmissable for all types of movie fans, CASABLANCA is one of them (R.J. LaForce).
