    "Pain like that is a warning something isn't right"

    Anytime the talk about Rosemary's baby would come up, I would always find some excuse to bypass my opinion on the movie. I'd find a vague way of mentioning a different film, or altogether not mention much at all. An idle way of saying in one way or another, that I just hadn't watched this legacy film ever before.

A masterpiece with classics of its own at its heart (Bogart & Bacall). Thematically centered around the haunting memories of past traumas that afflict us all. An aged singer who's beauty and voice that have left her…
