    Dirty Dancing

    ★★★★½

    Dirty Dancing is so precious to so many people that I approached it without reluctance because I was sure I'd get something out of it. Maybe some endearing schmaltz, a little 80s cheese, quality dance spectacle. It was a mindset of "go ahead and take care of this obvious must-see movie".

It's practically dreamlike. It reminds me of No Country for Old Men in many ways. Not just the land of…
