Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Casablanca is one of my all-time favorite movies. It’s an amazing film and it truly stands the test of time; 75 years after its release, it still moves me. The story has become a classic, the characters are iconic, and the script has so many terrific moments you could make a “top 100” list – my favorite will always be the dueling national anthems. I first watched Casablanca as a child, and even then I think I knew that it was something special. Of all the gin joints in all the world, thank God Ilsa walked into Rick’s. Play La Marseillaise!
Final Grade: A+
Thanks for reading!
