West Side Story ★★★★½

there was a time when hollywood actively encouraged filmmaking of this magnitude, not to take it there, but kinda shameful to compare a marvel movie to something like this. oh well, grateful that this vision was realized as it was.

all time great set design - all of the movies ideas, and in fact all of the medium’s ideas, are implicitly referenced in this upper west side recreation. must’ve been pretty tight getting to run around massive elaborate hollywood sets.
