    7th Heaven

    ★★★½

    7th Heaven From Frank Borzage is a film I do happen to quite like despite its obvious faults. It was one of the most popular films of its time back in 1927 and proved to be the start of the successful screen partnership of Charles Farrell and Janet Gaynor who would go on to make 11 more films together but none as enduring as this.

    For me although Stanley Kubrick did some outstanding work in his incredible career 2001: A Space Odyssey is his ultimate masterpiece. Because although 2001 is a magnificent visual feast it’s also a stunning intellectual thought piece where Kubrick’s own philosophical ideas and questions are examined in great detail which is what makes it so rewatchable. Every time you see it you catch something you may have…
