    A Place in the Sun


    Part 1 of 2 of my Elizabeth Taylor/George Stevens marathon while also trying to finish up the 1998 AFI top 100 list.

    One of the most distinctly edited films I've seen in awhile (so many cross-fades). The story was clearly influenced by Sunrise Tale of Two Humans, but more ambitious in it's scope (untimely to the films detriment) . Great performances all around though, and the theme of a man always looking for the next best thing hit a little too close to home.
