POLL: What classic film do you simply not get?

Leave a comment

By that, I don’t mean a well-regarded film that simply doesn’t do it for you. I mean a film you watch and truly do not understand how it achieved the rank of a classic.

My own choice probably has to be Casablanca. It’s a well-done romantic melodrama, no doubt about it, and I can see why it was embraced at the time. But why it continues to be considered not just a great piece of entertainment, but one of the greatest films of all time, is a mystery I have never personally solved.

Hold forth!

(The reason for this post, by the way, is that I’m currently quite busy and haven’t really had the time to catch up on my posts. But I really don’t want to leave the blog idle for too long.)
