West Side Story

West Side Story ★★★★½

oscar for mike faist for at least the following three moments in the rumble ALONE:
1. moving to stop tony from beating bernardo to death, then hesitating 
2. immediate fear in his eyes the moment he has the knife 
3. “it’s ok, it’s ok. take it out.” 

ps this is literally the best performance ansel has ever given in his whole life
