Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain ★★★★★

Goddamn. I don’t think there’s a single movie made before or since that’s simply had as much fun as Signin’ in the Rain does. The cast is having a blast, nearly every number is a romp, and it somehow manages to be a love letter to Hollywood while at the same time making a complete mockery of it. Sure, the movie does drag a bit in the latter half (“Broadway Melody” is wayyy too long) and the relationship between Don and Kathy is a little underwritten… but it hardly matters when one takes into account how fucking amazing the rest of the film is. From choreography to costuming, from directing to stunts… Singin’ in the Rain is, in many ways, as close to perfection as you can get.

If you haven’t seen it, it’s absolutely worth checking out. It’s a heartfelt tribute to the very act of making movies. And, considering how successful of a tribute it is, I kind of can’t believe they even continued to make movies after this…
