The Red Shoes (1948)
The Red Shoes (1948) You could stick virtually every Powell and Pressburger film on this rundown; such was the unique couple’s heavenly yield. Yet, for our cash and that of superfan Martin Scorsese this amazing artful dance set sentiment first among rises to. It’s an ideal articulation of specialists’ drive to make, set in a rich Technicolor world shot by the incomparable Jack Cardiff. Scorsese depicts it as “the film that plays in my heart.” We’ll take two seats at the back.
An attractive Freudian brain drinking spree that is regularly viewed as Alfred Hitchcock’s best victory, Vertigo is contributed a universe of existential fixation and tricky duplicates. Shape-moving her way through Edith Head’s groundbreaking outfits, Kim Novak frequents in two jobs:
