Mr. Smith Goes to Washington ★★★★

Obsessive Viewer: 20 Director Challenge - Round 1 - 4/20

Jimmy Stewart's performance is spectacular in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. That's a given, I'm sure, considering how iconic he and this movie are. But when the film reaches the end of his filibuster Stewart's delivery, his mannerisms, and the emotion through every line of dialogue he speaks all come together to create one hell of a finale.

I really loved seeing the juxtaposition between the way Stewart's character is so idealistic and naively patriotic and the way the government really operated.

I'm excited to see more of Capra's work.
