I have some thoughts about our American entry’s take on the intersection and patriotism, and also on the completely ridiculous accents basically everyone in this movie has. A lot of people like it though!
One of the best remembered comedies of the great Preston Sturges, about a director who is tired of making comedies.
This is a movie as “outsider art,” an unfiltered detour into a religious mind without an insincere bone in its body.
Orson Welles’ directorial debut survived vicious attacks to become the closest thing we have to a consensus “Greatest Movie of All Time.”
A movie that launched legendary careers and an entire classic genre of film, and is also pretty fun in its own right.
