KK’s review published on Letterboxd:
Unsurprisingly, for a film to have lasted 80 years in the Vaulted Annals of "The Greats" - Casablanca's greatest strength is its flawless screenplay, giving the perfect amount of exposition to get you right into the stakes of the film, adding layers until the powder-keg is full.
The icing on top that really makes the movie sing though is the texture of Casablanca itself: You see a dozen little stories play out throughout your time at Rick's Café Américain, and can't help but imagine how many hundreds more played out in the time before Ilsa walked through the doors.
It absolutely shreds. One of my all time faves.
