They had a date with fate in Casablanca!
The cinematic greatness that is Casablanca (1942) cannot be denied as a bonafide classic. At the time of its production, though it was not evident at first, the film was a force to be reckoned with. This film is destined to transport you to that all famous nightclub in Casablanca, Morocco during the early stages of WW2, with the likes of Humphrey Bogart and the marvelous Ingrid Bergman. This, ladies and gentlemen, is Hollywood’s finest moment of the 20th century, in my humble opinion. Whether it’s the film’s excellent blend of the dramatic and romance genres, superb dialogue, amazing casting, and a truly unforgettable narrative, this film will live forever in the hearts of those who’ve seen this film as soon as those credits end. Michael Curtiz puts so much meaning and attention to detail in nearly every scene of the film that one is bound to, upon additional viewings, pick up something different and anew every single time. From its sparkling, iconic characters, to its awe-inspiring set design, and the masterful writing and directing, Casablanca is a BEAUTIFUL film that will forever be heralded as the quintessential 20th century film masterpiece.
