West Side Story ★★★½

I still think the overture and almost silent five minute dance choreography at the beginning are absolutely the wrong foot for the film to start on, but I enjoyed West Side Story a little more this time, certainly helped by the fact that I watched it in a theater for the Fathom Event. The film is creaky in spots but there are a lot of great moments, lovely colors, and a powerful ending. Definitely loved going out and watching this on the big screen, as it was intended.
