Singin’ in the Rain, 1952 – ★★★★★ [Movie Log]

An absolutely perfect film so overflowing with joy, with every scene drowning in so much talent, that one can do nothing but shower it with praise, from the torrent of technicolor to the lightning quick footwork. It is a treat for and testament to what it means to be human, all at once a feast for our ears and our eyes and our minds as it ironically plays on the illusive ingenuity of Hollywood for concealing our human limits by putting front and center some of the most physically demanding and impressive dancing ever filmed.

Since I generally write up a few quick thoughts for each movie I watch, and in the interest of making public more of my thinking and writing processes, I figured that I might as well post the occasional review to this blog as well as to my Letterboxd/Rotten Tomatoes accounts.
