The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music ★★★★

really wanted to come into this with a hot take by saying that it's overrated, too schmaltzy, or overproduced, but nah, it's actually good. everything here looks impossibly huge and stunning -- robert wise always knew how to make the environment the real center of the picture -- and the cast is sweet and charming enough. one of those rare musicals where you probably know all the songs by heart before you'd ever watch the film itself.

more thoughts here.
