Casablanca ★★★★½

I had to watch this for my film class and tbh I wasn't in the mood to. But it turned out to be very enjoyable! The final scene in particular, with Humphrey Bogart's monologue to Ingrid Bergman has so much weight to it after you watch all he's been through.

There are so many great (and famous) lines that come from this film:

"Here's looking at you, kid."
"Play it once, Sam. For old times sake."
"We'll always have Paris."
"Round up the usual suspects."
"I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

And there have been countless references and parodies of this film throughout pop culture, standing the test of time, so I feel like I'm finally privy to an 80-year-old Hollywood inside joke.

Film #29 of my film journey during quarantine
