CITIZEN KANE (dir: Orson Welles, Not Rated) - Michelle says, "It’s a little silly for me to review this movie, especially when others have written reams about cinema’s most important film. So I guess I could just ruin it and tell you what “Rosebud!” refers to. But instead, I’ll point out that the dude who dies whispering “Rosebud” lives in a mansion called Xanadu, the namesake of that awesome Olivia Newton John movie. Thus Orson Welles’s directorial debut clearly ties to a disco roller-skating musical extravaganza – one that also explores the trajectory of our lives, and the power of inspiration and ambition to pave the dream paths upon which we all eventually crash and die. Hah, smarty-pants movie critics! Bet you never thought of that!"
DUMBO (dir: Ben Sharpsteen, Not Rated) - Michelle says, "I associate elephants with memory, not just based on the cliché, but because I saw some documentary clip on YouTube featuring elephants that remembered each other after like a generation of being separated. It made me cry to see them reunited, all wrapping their long trunks around each other lovingly, and they weren’t even related. So think how this kid movie, with a mommy and a baby elephant separated then rejoined, affects my hormonally-powered aesthetic? And how about those crazy jazzy crows, Disney’s best impression of people of color in the 1940s? Plus, your kid will certainly appreciate the creepy hallucination scene, when Baby Dumbo and his buddy the mouse get wasted, halfway through. What a movie!"
49TH PARALLEL (dir: Michael Powell, Not Rated) - Bart says, "This WWII-set adventure film follows a group of German soldiers stranded in Canada when their U-boat is sunk as they try to make their way to the then-still-neutral USA. Sure, it's propaganda - these Nazis couldn't be nastier - but it's surprisingly successful at wringing suspense from its episodic structure in which a series of ordinary citizens, including Laurence Olivier as a happy-go-lucky French-Canadian trapper, must prove themselves heroic against a band of roving villains."
