My 50 Favorite Flicks • #19

Here’s lookin’ at you #19…

Casablanca (1942)
Yes.  Casablanca is one of the classics. Yes, it is one of my favorite films ever!  Even with the build up this film comes with, it still manages to impress me every time I watch it.  Trivia fact, my wife and I try to watch this on every Valentine’s Day.  And on a few occasions we will see it at the Brattle Theatre when they get themselves a print.  I was introduced to this film in college and have grown to build appreciation for everything it does. It isn’t your typical happy ending love store, quite the opposite.  And with an setting of World War II it gives the story a real seriousness in the decisions Rick makes.  See it, and see it again.
