200, ladies and germs! This is a historic moment. I cannot believe I have reviewed two hundred films!! I don't usually have anything special with this milestones; I prefer to wait until the end of a decade. But really, I feel like I am making tons of progress. I am extremely pleased and have had a blast. I think this calls for cupcakes!
Anyway, I watched this movie many moons ago but I still remember it. It pretty much consists of a guy dying for about an hour and half. Surprisingly, it actually isn't boring. It is also quite amazing that this is a film with a sympatheticIrish rebel, considering the fact that it is in 1947. Certainly never would have been done in America.
Overall, an entertaining and significant film; good way to kick off the 200s.
James Mason thought it was the best performance of his career.
First British film to win the BAFTA award.
