Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain ★★★★★

Well, I guess that was better than going out to see the Entourage movie.

I had a smile on my face for the entirety of the picture. Not only does the film glowingly triumphs as a straight musical, but also reveals itself, for those willing to look just a little further than the enchanting spectacle ahead of them, as a surprisingly nuanced satire on Hollywood.

From the opening sequence, in the red carpet, a kind of bleak glamour permeates the screen. Kelly irradiates charm as he puts his spell on the fascinated crowd and, at the same time, in a supernaturally subtle manner, shares with skeptic members of the feature the unattractive truth behind the pretty facade. The staggering thing is, that this confidentiality crosses every movie layer through a indescribable pseudo-trivial-artificiality in his tremendous performance, revealing more than apparently intended by the real production.
