Casablanca ★★★★★

Every time I see this film I'm reminded of the bittersweet existence we live these days. Social networking and the internet has made us more connected than ever, and Casablanca serves as a reminder of a time when goodbye meant goodbye. To never see someone's face again is now the realm of strangers, enemies, and the deceased. Only the realms of film and literature hazard such finite relations, and there is beauty in it.

Casablanca is a true classic, the perfect blend of humour, romance and intrigue.
