    Gone with the Wind

    ★★★★

    The first time I watched this movie was in high school... where I was "forced" to watch it as a "civil war time piece." I didn't hate it back then, but I definitely did not like it... thinking it was long and boring.

    Now that I re-watched it (when I am older and wiser) I have a new outlook on it! I definitely still think it is long, but it is not boring. I am very impressed by the acting by Vivien Leigh. She makes the lead character hate-able and relatable. I upgraded my rating to 4 stars based on her portrayal of Scarlett.

    I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. The story was compelling and somehow very relatable even though I haven't been through the exact experience. Maybe a testament to the similarities in all relationships and human nature. The movie itself was interestingly done... with soliloquies, overlaid scenes, and witty banter. Maybe, I should say, witty whining.

    There was too much shouting (in incomprehensible Quebecois) and uncomfortable situations... but that is what made this film very powerful. Impressive scenery (narrow shots, colors, camera spans...) from such a young director!
