Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain ★★★★★

The pinnacle, the definitive, the “Citizen Kane” of the genre.

It’s symbolic, lighthearted, yet realistic, empathetic and funny. Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen crafted a true masterpiece of dance, singing, and narrative with this film. The narrative of the story is pure Hollywood. Technicolor which makes the film as pleasing to the eye as it is to the ear.

To watch Kelly perform “Singin’ in the Rain” is like watching the perfect sunset. It’s so beautiful. You never want it to end but of course, it must. The choreography here is top-notch.

It’s an absolute pleasure to sit through every time – few runtimes fly by as quickly. Is Singin' in the Rain the finest movie musical of them all? There are none better in my book.

If you have never seen this film before, watch it, and you will see why it is as respected as it is.
