    The Phantom Carriage

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    To finish out the year, I felt that there was no better film to watch than Victor Sjostrom's masterpiece, The Phantom Carriage, especially since the film takes place on New Year's Eve and this New Year's Eve was also the Eve of the film's 100th Anniversary.

    I actually had decent hopes for The Natural, namely because it starred Robert Redford, who has given incredible performances as characters like the Sundance Kid, not to mention the film itself seemed…
