Casablanca is truly one of the all-time greats. From the smart and revealing dialogue to the noirish setting, the film is spectacular in the way it crafts a unique world of espionage and spoiled romance. All of the principal leads are equally memorable, though Humphrey Bogart gets the lion's share of the script's iconic lines.

Some good dialogue and acting, in a story of past romance and political dealings. I give this film points for it's competence and great ending, but I just didn't care much for it the way most everyone seems to.

I'm not sure why I waited so long to see this movie, but this film truly deserves it's status as one of the greatest films in of all time. The fact that you can watch something made 70 years ago and see it still hold up today is a true feat. The story is engaging, the dialogue crisp, the characters intriguing, and the climax heartbreaking. Truly one of the greats.

Yes. It is that good people.

I know it's a cliche to write/say this nowadays but it's true for once! Casablanca is one of the best movies ever! For this movie to have its plot driven almost entirely by memorable dialogue and iconic characters but remain so popular well over 70 years after its release says something about the state of Hollywood with its reliance on mostly half-baked comedies, derivative horror shlock, and CGI drenched crowd-pleasers. I doubt mind the 3rd one of course but seriously, it's not that heard. Casablanca finds originality and heart in something that had the strong likelihood of becoming just another ensemble piece being churned out regularly during WW2.
Oh look at that, I got carried away again. Needless to say, I loved this movie because of its atmosphere, its exceptionally strong cast, th...

"Casablanca" by Yojimbo

Wartime cafe owner Humphrey Bogart's life is turned upside down when the woman who broke his heart walks into his bar with her husband, a fugitive from the Nazis, looking for an escape to America. This is one of those films the phrase "they don't make 'em like that anymore" was invented for. At its core it is a propaganda film made to encourage the American public to join the fight against the Nazis, but it is far from the usual heavy handed flag waver. It skillfully interweaves the patriotic message with political intrigue, wartime heroics and romance with a script full of wit and sophistication. The cast are all pretty much faultless, but it is the uneasy friendship between Bogart and the brilliant Claude Rains which makes the film, and their cynical interplay and banter is a joy to beh...

Casablanca review

Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) owns Rick's Café Américain in Casablanca. He bumps into an old flame Norwegian Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) with her husband Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid) who is a fugitive Czech Resistance leader that escaped from a Nazi camp. Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains) is a friend of Rick’s and a corrupt official. Political tensions arise in the Café and Major Heinrich Strasser ensures that Laszlo doesn’t conduct any revolt against the German’s. The priceless "letters of transit" have been used to flee Ilsa and Victor. Some of the many memorable quotes that I enjoyed: Rick –"Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life." Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." Victor – “Apparently you think of me only as t...
