Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain ★★★★★

It is often said that magic comes from fairy tales, fantasy stories and a vivid imagination. Few of us, however, disagree with that statement on some occasions. Magic comes from life itself; the main character fully represents this wise anecdote in what may be the most charming number in a musical of the 50s. Unparalleled by then and irreplaceable now, Singin' in the Rain is one of the few musicals in history with such a high standard, and among the few movies that make me cry after watching a non-sad sequence over and over again. I insist there was a very damn good reason why Malcolm McDowell could only remember this song in A Clockwork Orange (1971).

97/100
