Thank you guys so much! Out of these I haven’t seen The Man Who Laughs and Duck Soup but I’ve heard so many good things about these two films. Definitely gonna check them out.
I finally caved and bought The Red Shoes during the Criterion sale even though I have literally seen it nearly 20 times. But it is so pretty, you know, so pretty… *my wallet weeps softly in the background*
I'm glad you care about movies too much. So do I. I love Pre-Code Hollywood. And I love classic French Cinema. So what started your passion about movies?
Oohhh I love Pre-Code Hollywood and French cinema as well! What are some of your favorite films? I’m interested in literally every genre and era to be honest. It all started when my mother made me watch Casablanca when I was 12. She had a ridiculous crush on Humphrey Bogart since forever. And that was it for me really. Casablanca is the first black and white movie I ever saw and for some reasons, probably because of how beautifully shot it is, the film made me notice and appreciate the technical aspect of cinema (lighting, angles, mise-en-scene, etc…) So yeah I was doomed to be a cineaste ever since *sniffs sniffs*
