    Never let a pair of men fuck with your emotions. Moira Shearer is incredible. The colors, the production design, costumes, I mean, I could go on. And that ballet... damn. Magical.

    Perfection. A study in blocking and camera movement. The deep space. The POVs. Maybe the best use of zooms in a more subtle style. I mean Haskell Wexler just did the fucking thing, it's just incredible.

    And the script, goddamn! Sharp, crisp, it feels fresh even in 2017. It's just so perfectly layered and a playground for the amazing cast. Steiger earned that Oscar win but Poitier is just a star. And everyone around them are just pitch perfect.

    An eternity in the cloud with my beautiful wife just being gay and in love. Ideal.
