The Lion in Winter ★★★★

There are so many great movies like this I still haven't seen that sometimes I feel my frame of reference for judging movies is a bit inadequate. I know the only way to progress forward is to keep doing my best, but occasionally it feels like there's just too much out there for me to wrap my head around it all.

In any case, this brought me back to my college days studying Shakespeare. Definitely feels like a play, and it's a bit slow and long, but the dialogue is just so perfect and snappy and all the characters work phenomenally well. Everyone was cast perfectly. Production design was through the roof. Very classically shot. A real pleasure.
