Movie Review by Seth
February 13th, 2006

I am a movie fan born of 1990's cinema. Anything earlier has always recieved a scoff, and anything in black and white was deemed laughable. I am pleased to say that I am being stripped of this bias.

Casablanca is a great film, and though it carries the melodrama typical of early films, it is not without it's connections to modern characters and plots. Horribly simple in it's roughly two location set, the story nevertheless engages and inspires. Such a simplicity should be more common, and not just in indie flicks like Clerks.

Though so much is made of the connection between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, their story is not the one that I loved. My favorites were the individual stories, like that of Sam the piano player. Bogart and Bergman are captivating for who they are, not who they are together, and that's what makes them lovable.

Here's to the movies that made American cinema what it is today.
